Although the hazards of high altitude flight to the human body are well documented, most business aviation pilots have little first-hand experience with them. The following courses provide pilots with first-hand experience to the hazards of high altitude flight:
Executive Aerospace Physiology Training Course is located at the Institute
for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas.
Our staff has over sixty years of combined military experience in Aviation
Physiology. The session involves a half day course, which consists of two
"1 hour" blocks of academic training. These include:
of the Atmosphere
Effects of pressure Change
The altitude training will last
one hour. This will include:
flight to 25,000 feet with a hypoxia demonstration
Visual Acuity demonstration conducted at 18,000 feet (under low illumination conditions)
The course will last approximately four hours. All students must have current physicals or be able to pass a brief pre-flight medical examination. Pilots will be required to have a current FAA physical. If you are not current, please inform us at the time of scheduling as we will need to arrange a medical examination prior to your course. Also, please note, we have a Senior Aeromedical Examiner that can update your current, Class I, II or III physical if you so desire.
Course scheduling or questions can be answered by calling 214-345-4631. The FAA physicals are also available through this number.

Through SimuFlite's Alternate Recurrent High Altitude Flight course you can become thoroughly prepared for the hazards of high altitude flying, including high-speed/high-altitude aerodynamics, weather phenomena and aviation physiology. The course even includes an altitude chamber flight so you can experience the effects of hypoxia on yourself and your fellow crew members under controlled conditions. The course is open to participants who have a thorough understanding of aircraft systems and who train as a crew.
