Private aviation firm launches personal protection division


Private aviation firm NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company, recently launched its own personal protection division QS Security Services.

According to a statement from the company, QS Security Services “will protect high-profile travellers by leveraging decades of unmatched security expertise gained from federal, state, and local law enforcement, as well the U.S. military. This new service will offer NetJets owners access to an international network of safety experts that are available 24/7 to provide various levels of security services, such as secure ground transportation, close-protection agents, and medically trained personnel.”

The company added that the security service will be offered initially as a premium service on select routes and will correspond to the threat level of the travellers’ destination, as determined by the U.S. Department of State.

QS Security will be led by Jack VanderStoep, vice-president of global security at NetJets. VanderStoep has more than 20 years of previous experience with the FBI.
