Olympia, WA (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
FACTS® Training International announced today that they have launched a new one-day safety and emergency procedures program designed specifically for pilots, to be held at their Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Airport training facility located at CAE SimuFlite.
The course provides pilots who are attending CAE training an opportunity for an intense one-day program that combines classroom instruction with extensive hands-on equipment experience. Pilots are given instruction in aviation fire fighting with live fire exercises, emergency land evacuation scenarios and wet ditching. Also presented is Hypoxia Awareness Training, including use of a hypoxia simulator that allows participants to feel the symptoms of hypoxia without exposure to the potential risks of a decompression chamber. The course is instructed from a flight-deck perspective and an emphasis on human factors, communication and leadership during emergency situations.
“Our mission is to help build safer flight departments and to help turn average crewmembers into elite crewmembers,” said Jeffrey Roberts, CEO of AirCare International and FACTS Training International. “As part of this mission we’ve created a program for pilots of all sizes of business aircraft. Pilots may not normally have the time for or access to this level of instruction, and they realize that they simply can’t train like this on their own in the hangar.”
Successful completion of the course helps flight departments fulfill specific training requirements for FAA, EASA, JAR-OPS, EU-OPS, and IS-BAO compliance using realistic and applicable training devices and instruction.
The FACTS® pilot course is offered through CAE SimuFlite. The first four classes will occur the Fridays of May 13th, May 27th, June 24th and July 15th. Class size is limited and pilots should contact CAE directly to schedule (+1-800-527-2463 in the U.S., Mexico and Canada).
