“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.” – Mark Twain
Battlespace Flight Services
On the Battlespace Flight Services front page of their website they have a “Join Our Team” section. In this section is a picture of 4 smiling employees and a caption that reads “Our continued grown has created a wealth of career opportunities. We offer our employees exciting aviation support work in a high energy environment that encourages teamwork, unprecedented attention to detail and professionalism.”
I have not a single doubt in my mind that all this is true. But what is also true is that working for the Battlespace Flight Services can be dangerous and there is definite potential for injury.
Does this mean that you should not work for Battlespace Flight Services? Absolutely not. This means that you need to find out if you, as an employee of Battlespace Flight Services, are covered under the Defense Base Act.

After you’ve filed your claim you need to be proactive and start building your case. Let Battlespace Flight Services know you have been injured, start gathering all the evidence you can to verify your claim, and most importantly lawyer up.
You are going to have to navigate the treacherous waters of the DBA law system and that is not an easy thing to do without proper preparation or guidance.
Like you’re studying for an exam you are going to have to study how to act, what to say and what you need to win you your DBA case. To study properly you need resources. So here are the three best resources you are going to get that cover the DBA:
