Michael Arias WRT March 9th, 2008 Since September 11th, the country has gone through a number of radical changes. With the idea of terrorists being able to use an airplane as a weapon, security at airports has become very tight and very meticulous. In order to ensure that the general public is safe from any dangerous situation involving the airlines, homeland security has created a standard for the safety of the passengers. One of the most visible security changes may be what happens on the airplane itself. Considering that the prior events happened within the actual plane, engineers had to figure out a way to secure the pilots firsthand. In an event where there needs to be complete isolation from the rest of the plane, the cockpit will now have bulletproof doors to protect the pilot and flight crew. Along with that, there have been ideas to install Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) systems as a way to monitor the cabin and to keep an eye on the rest of the plane. This can also be used as a different form of the black-box, assuring more detailed records of the flight.
