Abstract:

The primary objective in controlling hijackers must be to prevent them from getting aboard an aircraft and techniques to achieve this objective are being developed. However, for the foreseeable future some hijackers will be able to escape detection and gain entry to aircraft. It is consequently desirable that flight deck crews, cabin attendants and air crew management have practical guidelines to assist them in coping with the in-cabin hijacker when the aircraft is airborne or on the ground. The paper is based on information gained from studies of hijackings which have occurred in the United States and Canada. Author Modified Abstract
