Par Excellence: Pilots in Training (part 3 of 3)

Emergency training is the third and last step in selecting and developing pilots for service in the PlaneSense program. While this topic is also covered during flight training, we send our candidates to Survival Systems, Inc. to learn and practice firsthand what to do during and after an emergency. The overall key to preparedness is training and practice to help pilots overcome their most natural, human instincts and provide them with reliable and trusted procedures that are second nature for them to execute in the unlikely event of an emergency.

Survival Systems Syllabus
Day 1: First Aid. CPR Certification. Administration of First Aid and CPR in the aircraft.
Day 2: life Vests and life rafts, including boarding life rafts from the water. Modular Egress Training Simulator for different emergency situations.

Successfully mastering Ground Training, Flight Training and Emergency Training is one way to look at what it takes to become a First officer in our organization. But more than that, what we teach and practice throughout these rigorous sessions is the foundation of our on-going regimen to keep our skills sharp with hands-on activities that include the whole range of safety equipment on board our aircraft.
