Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) remains a major concern throughout the aviation industry.
The FAA and ICAO have determined that LOC-I (due to upsets) is the number one cause of transport category fatal accidents. However, traditional pilot training using conventional simulators fails to prepare pilots to successfully recover from an Upset, LOC-I, or CFIT situation. Other safety of flight issues such as hypoxia, rapid decompression, spatial disorientation and situational awareness, and water survival are primarily academic discussions and a sign off in a log book. ETC offers realistic hands-on training by placing pilots and crew in authentic flight training environments.
Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Train for a variety of upset conditions, several of which are replicated from actual events. Pilots learn to pull and sustain real G forces during recoveries in a two seat business jet cockpit.
Altitude and Hypoxia Training Participants experience hypoxia, loss of color vision, rapid decompression, Time of Useful Consciousness (TUC) and other high altitude hazards. Train in an FAA approved Altitude Chamber.
SA and SD Training Pilots obtain the knowledge and practical experience to prevent and recover from a loss of SA & SD. Includes flying through several common SD Illusions in our multi-axis GL-2000 flight simulator.
Motion Sickness Desensitization For all forms of Motion Sickness. Learn arousal recognition, breathing and relaxation techniques, followed by desensitization flight profiles in our continuous Yaw simulator.
Water Survival Training Provides pilots, crew and passengers with knowledge and skills for managing unanticipated landings and/or other episodes where open water rescue may be required.
