High Altitude Awareness Training

The Aircare FACTS High Altitude Awareness Training is a fast-paced program conducted at the client’s hangar or at any of Aircare’s fixed-base locations. This course is specifically designed to provide a safe means for crewmembers to personally experience the advanced signs, symptoms and effects of high altitude hypoxia.

This program, including classroom discussion and hands-on experience, gives pilots, flight techs, cabin crew and frequent flyers the opportunity to experience a slow-onset decompression without the potentially harmful side-effects and discomfort of a decompression chamber.
