Our Loss of Control, Upset Recognition & Recovery, and High Altitude Stall Recovery courses are taught exclusively by former military flight instructors with many thousands of hours of experience. Additionally, some are former astronauts, test pilot school graduates and test pilot school instructors. Many have extensive military combat experience, and all are extremely skilled and proficient.
We use a number of aircraft in our training which we can customize to a customer’s specific needs. These include: the MB-326 jet trainer, the Sabreliner, the DHC1 Chipmunk, the T-67 Firefly and the NDN-IT Turbine Firecracker.
The course duration is 2 to 4 days depending on each customers needs and experience, and many times the course can be completed over a weekend at our training facility in Mojave, CA.
