Southpac welcomes Jim Termini as Principal Aviation Security Advisor

Southpac Aerospace has welcomed Jim Termini as Principal Aviation Security Consultant

Southpac Aerospace has recently appointed Jim Termini to its new Consulting & Advisory team to head up the aviation security offering.

Jim Termini has joined the Southpac team with a wealth of experience and practical knowledge within all areas of aviation security following a global career spanning more than 20 years in commercial aviation. His experience extends from delivery of security training through to State representation in bilateral inspections. As a permanent observer to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Working Group on Guidance Material (WGGM), Jim has delivered practical advice to regulators and international bodies.

A highly respected name in AvSec, having co-founded one of the world’s leading aviation security companies, Redline, Jim brings his expertise to Southpac to expand the organisation’s Consulting & Advisory offering into this high demand area.

With audit, assurance and management systems expertise still at the heart of the offering, Southpac’s newly expanded Consulting & Advisory services include aerodrome operations, covering regional and major airports, alongside safety, quality, risk and compliance management, as well as global expertise in aviation advisory and now aviation security.

Southpac’s Director of Aviation Advisory, Gareth Coe, said moving into aviation security was a natural fit to complement the existing capabilities of the Consulting & Advisory team around airport operations and aerodrome management, as well as Southpac’s well-established training arm.

“We’re pleased to have Jim join our team at a time when aviation security is expected to really ramp up, based on regulatory changes coming out of the UK and Europe. The Australian domestic market and the Pacific Islands in particular will be well-placed to lift aviation security standards with the likes of Jim heading up Southpac’s ability to service this region,” he said.

In 2023, Southpac has already begun a technical advisor role, engaged by the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO), to provide technical and AvSec inspectorate assistance across the PASO member States.
