FIT Aviation offers training courses that give experience that otherwise might not be gained during aviation training. Upset Recovery and High Altitude training give you extra skills to add to your training portfolio to help set you apart in your future career endeavors. Not only will you be able to deal with unusual situations that could arise, you will be knowledgeable of how to avoid them in the first place.
Upset, or Spin, Recovery Training is a hands-on course where an instructor shows you what a spin feels like first hand and teaches you how to safely recover. The course consists of 2 hours of instructed flight in our aerobatic American Champion Citabria as well as ground training with a qualified instructor.
Cadets taking part in this training will perform routine pilot functions in a hypobaric chamber. The simulated altitude will be increased at specific intervals to give the cadet a real experience and see how hypoxia can affect abilities to perform safety critical functions.
