RCAF Introduction

​Course includes a detailed look at the hazards associated with operational flight over water.  Personal and aircraft specific equipment will be covered in class and used in the practical sessions.  Trainees will then be involved in aircraft-specific, scenario-based emergencies, with the emphasis on developing an emergency escape plan.

Other topics important to aircrew survival are covered throughout the program.  They include survival psychology and the effect on human performance in an emergency situation; cold water immersion and its effect on breath hold; and physical performance in an unprotected state.


Emergency Breathing Systems is an extremely important survival component.  FSSC believes that in order to be capable of using the EBS in an overturned helicopter, aircrew must understand all aspects of this vital piece of equipment and must be confident their ability to operate the devise in the inverted state. Classroom theory is followed by a written EBS exam, then practical use in the METS™.

All the practical aspects of the training will be conducted in the survival training simulation theatre (STST™) pool with full environmental effects to prepare participants on the mental and physical considerations for deliberate and no-warning water entries.
