FlightSafety International and the Mayo Clinic have teamed to develop a new training program for hypoxia awareness. Under the contract, FlightSafety will install Mayo-designed training equipment at some of its learning centers.

The course includes physiological and ground school sessions covering regulations and advisory circulars for high-altitude flight. A detailed debriefing includes a private viewing of each individual’s responses and symptoms.

Hypoxia occurs when the body either doesn’t receive enough oxygen or cannot process enough to maintain normal function. Symptoms vary from slowing reaction times, errors in judgment and, finally, loss of consciousness.
