What’s the big deal about preparing for June 30th, 2018?
Cybersecurity is very important to Avjobs and we want you to know we are compliant with the most recent PCI security standards deadline of June 30, 2018. Avjobs has upgraded to the most current data protocols that meet all regulatory requirements to protect our customers ecommerce transactions and data security.
If you find you are not able to connect to other websites on or after June 30th, 2018, it’s important to know it’s most likely a problem with the web browser or operating system on the computer you are using, and can quickly and easily be fixed. Non-compliant web browsers are typically older and the easy fix is to simply upgrade to the latest version.
Due to new credit card processing laws, these updates or upgrades are necessary to access and interact with some websites. In the event you experience a problem connecting to a website or making a purchase, you may even need to update the operating system on your computer as older operating systems may not be able to connect due to older and outdated communication protocol technology limitations. It is important to remember, this problem is a result of old web browser and operating system technology that is not aligned with the latest security protocols. Unfortunately, most websites will not have the ability to redirect visitors to a page that instructs an upgrade or explains the problem, and the connection to the website or purchase process will simply fail. If a connection fails, it’s important to know that it’s not a problem with the website but with the web browser or operating system on the computer used to access the website or make the purchase.
As the leading cloud-based aviation career portal, we want you to know we've completed all the necessary upgrades and are keeping your data safe and secure from evolving cyberthreats, and we look forward to continuing to serving you well into the future.

Practical Airport Operations, Safety and Emergency Management: Protocols for Today and the Future
Practical Airport Operations, Safety, and Emergency Management: Protocols for Today and the Future focuses on the airport itself, not the aircraft, manufacturers, designers, or even the pilots. The book explores the safety of what’s been called ‘the most expensive piece of pavement in any city’- the facility that operates, maintains, and ensures the safety of millions of air passengers every year. Available at Elsevier, Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
Turbulence is an occupational hazard that we all take very seriously. Recently, our flying partners have confronted the dangers of turbulence on several flights around the system. Especially in light of these events, it is a good time to remember that every day we fly, when it comes to cabin safety, place yourself and your flying partners first. It is only through these efforts that we may fulfill our duties as safety professionals for the passengers in our care. To minimize injuries caused in turbulence or chop, stow all but the most necessary service components when the service is over, especially carts, full coffee pots, and glass bottles. Use of tie downs for carts is not only a federal regulation, diligent use of tie downs and latches will prevent disaster.
