Aircare FACTS is dedicated to raising the standard of crewmember training and safety in business aviation. It offers a wide range of specialized emergency procedures and staffing solutions to help flight departments optimize their SOP’s, safety culture and service levels.
What is the scope of aviation safety?
Aircare’s training programs focus on human factors, and are based on real-world scenarios. The program includes classroom presentations, a digital manual and practical skills development. Instructors are experienced in corporate aviation. Training tools include full-size, full-motion aircraft cabin simulators, a pool, water survival equipment, live fire trainers and the industry’s only inverted underwater egress “dunker.”
The company’s mission is to provide business aviation pilots, flight engineers and flight attendants with an outstanding experience that will increase their confidence and level of preparedness in a variety of emergency situations. In addition to its many fixed training centers and scheduled courses across the US and Europe, Aircare FACTS offers customized onsite emergency procedures training for flight departments and their crews.
This year, during the PNBAA Safety & Security Day conference, Aircare FACTS will also be providing live fire fighting demonstrations for attendees to learn about the risks associated with lithium battery fires at altitude and how they can be mitigated. The company is a longtime supporter of the PNBAA Safety & Security Day event, which brings together a network of business aviation professionals to discuss and share best practices for aircraft safety, security and staffing issues.
There is no specific educational background or education required to become a flight attendant in business aviation, but it is important to pass the FAA’s safety training requirements. Other qualifications and experiences are helpful, such as previous work in hospitality, nursing/EMS or culinary food preparation.
