Hypoxia Prevention within a
High-Altitude Chamber (HAC)
This course educates pilots about the dangers of hypoxia during flight. The course is undertaken in a hyperbaric chamber, which allows simulating flight conditions at high altitudes.
The course teaches how to recognize the signs and sensations of the onset of hypoxia, how to prevent a situation that renders you unable to control flight, the actions in case of cabin decompression, and the importance of using an oxygen mask under these circumstances.
This course is taught in small groups using simplified flight simulators within a hyperbaric chamber. Pilots communicate with ATC while climbing at a rate of 1,500 feet per minute, to allow individual exploration of the signs and sensations of hypoxia.
The course includes a conference, pre-flight orientation, high-altitude training and an individual review of pilots' sensations in different scenarios.
*Standardized Courses tailorable to fit specific training requirements.
