During Decompression and Hypoxia Awareness Training you will learn about aircraft pressurization, decompression, hypoxia and other altitude related conditions, oxygen equipment and systems on board, appropriate treatment and response. You will learn how to respond effectively in a decompression or hypoxic situation. Several case studies will also be examined.
Our training facilities incorporate state-of-the art environmental effects, equipment and training scenarios to help you react intuitively and effectively in a life-threatening decompression or hypoxic situation. To imitate reality as closely as possible, you will train in a simulator configured to replicate the aircraft you fly in, and use equipment that replicates actual hypoxic conditions.
Research has shown that hypoxia-trained aircrew recognised symptoms in themselves, or in others, and took corrective actions. Through hypoxia simulated altitude training, you will safely experience the effects of hypoxia. Dynamic Advanced Training uses a technologically advanced reduced oxygen training system to simulate 25,000 ft altitude sessions in a safe, convenient and effective way to train and familiarise aircrew, with the objective physiological and cognitive effects of hypoxia. You will experience your own individual ‘time of useful consciousness’ and subjective hypoxic symptoms, without risks of barotrauma or decompression sickness. This will increase recognition and awareness of hypoxia at altitude, and so prevent or reduce hypoxia related incidents and accidents.
Decompression and Hypoxia Awareness Training covers all subjects and regulatory requirements set by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).
