FlightSafety International Offers Comprehensive Safety Courses for Business Aircraft Passengers

NEW YORK (May 18, 2015) – FlightSafety International is offering safety courses designed specifically for passengers of business aircraft.

“FlightSafety’s commitment to enhance aviation safety through professional training extends to passengers of business aircraft,” said David Davenport, Executive Vice President. “The Executive Safe Flight course provides passengers with training for a wide variety of emergency situations, the use of emergency equipment, and a basic understanding of aircraft operations.”

These Operation-specific classes are provided using FlightSafety’s advanced technology training devices including specially equipped corporate aircraft cabin trainers, aircraft crew fire trainers and in-water egress trainers. The courses also include training on the use of onboard emergency equipment such as fire extinguishers, aircraft exits, oxygen equipment, life vests, and life rafts. They are available at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Long Beach, California; Savannah, Georgia; Teterboro, New Jersey; and at the Paris-Le Bourget airport in France.

FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Savannah and Teterboro are equipped with an indoor pool for sea survival training which includes a full scale cabin egress trainer and a helicopter hoist rescue trainer. In addition, there is a cabin trainer equipped with a visual system that enhances training realism by depicting different emergency scenarios on the cabin and cockpit windows, much like that found in flight simulators.

The Executive Emergency course provides the same training offered by the Executive Safe Flight course but is typically conducted at the Customer’s facility and aboard their aircraft. The course location and timing can be flexible to meet the scheduling needs of the owners and passengers.

The courses meet the IS-BAO recommendations for passenger training and can be tailored to the specific needs of the passengers and the Flight Operation.
