How an idea is born
A young Lieutenant’s fighter plane crashes due to a birdstrike. Fortunately, he only suffers minor injuries, but his peer and great friend Fabio Masci begins to deal assiduously with the problem, which can represent a serious danger to aviation. So, when he takes charge of the Flight Safety Office of the 5th Stormo Caccia based in Cervia (IT), he begins to devise a method to monitor and remove birds from the airport area on base.
The method devised by Lieutenant Fabio Masci works really well to the point that it gets adopted by the entire Italian Air Force.
Upon his return from a tour in the United States, where he becomes one of the first 4 Italian F16 instructor pilots, he also gets rewarded by the US Air National Guard for having managed to obtain, in just one year, the same accident rate that the USA achieved in 20 years of F16 service. Flight safety becomes a real passion for Fabio, to the point that he becomes an international point of reference for the matter.
When he serves at the TLP (Tactical Leadership Programme) in Albacete, Spain, he is appointed flight safety manager thanks to his skills acquired in the field.
He participates in serveral operations, some international accidents investigation, and many specialized courses.
The most natural thing, once he left the Air Force, was obviously wanting to contribute to the safety of civilian flights too through the method he himself had devised, but improving it thanks to technology.
This is how BCMS® Ventur is born, the system that has its foundations in the deep knowledge of the subject of flight safety, but which is able to exploit frontier technologies to perform precise and punctual monitoring that no person would be able to do. Thanks to cameras and artificial intelligence, what has always been the young lieutenant’s passion can be achieved in the best possible way and which now, after leaving the air force as a lieutenant colonel, he would like to become a standard at least in the busiest airports. Because the safety of crews, passengers and goods is strongly related to the safety of the most delicate phases of the flight such as take-off and landing.
