Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) May 02, 2017
Aircare International announced today that the company now offers a new enhanced hypoxia training course for pilots and cabin crew at their fixed-based centers within the United States. The training combines classroom instruction on high-altitude physiology with practical training using a state-of-the art hypoxia training platform. The hypoxia training system, previously only available in military training, incorporates flight control simulation with a hypoxia-inducing reduced oxygen breathing device (ROBD).
Students are safely exposed to simulated altitudes of up to FL320 while operating an aircraft flight simulator. The system is designed to demonstrate how altitude can alter their performance, without the potentially harmful physical side effects of a decompression chamber.
“We are continuously looking at ways to enhance our emergency procedures training programs,” said Brian Hayvaz, Vice President of Operations for Aircare’s FACTS Training services. “This new system adds an element of realism while providing a safe environment in which to experience the dangers of hypoxia in flight.”
Aircare Hypoxia Training is available at regularly scheduled classes across the United States.
