FlightSafety, Gulfstream Team on Science-based Pilot Training

 - May 19, 2014, 1:45 PM

A partnership between FlightSafety International (FSI) and Gulfstream has created two new science-based flight crew training courses. One focuses on rejected takeoffs, presenting the flight crew with as many as 18 different V1 abort scenarios requiring a decision to continue or abort the takeoff. The second course reviews the physics of energy management during the aircraft descent, helping pilots to avoid unstabilized approaches. Another new training option uses a custom methodology to present critical aircraft procedures and tasks according to the phase of flight rather than to a particular aircraft system.
