We Don’t Just Train Pilots, We Create Aviators
Aviation is not just about flying, it's is about leadership, safety, and embracing a sense of adventure. Aviation is hours of study, maintaining your health at a high level, and joining a community of professionals that author the pages of history. It isn’t easy, and the price can be high, but if you want a rewarding career that you will never regret then it's well worth the journey. Be part of the next generation of aviation professionals and begin your career as a pilot with USATS.

Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET)
This course allows students to learn survival techniques and procedures when an aircraft has a forced landing in deep water. The course provides students with the theoretical instruction and practical training necessary to take the respective assessment.
All personnel participating in this course must be physically and mentally fit. Prior to the start of the course, students are evaluated to determine their swimming skills, which will allow us to make the necessary accommodations for the development of the practical training.
The course encompasses the review of various areas, such as life raft operation, personal flotation device, cold water physiology, and the use of the aircraft emergency exits.
Finally, this course is a requirement to fly over water in firefighting operations, search and rescue operations, transport missions and other missions that require long-term flight over the sea and large lakes.
