Unique Aerospace Physiology and Human Performance Update Course to be provided at Heli-Expo 2020

Posted by jhadmin

Once again, a vital, one of a kind lifesaving course on aerospace physiology for helicopter operators will be offered at this year’s Heli-Expo in Anaheim, CA. This year’s class has been moved back to Monday, 27 January 2020. The full-day course, taught by one of the industry’s leading subject matter experts, Dr. Dudley Crosson, will focus on the latest research and developments on some old, some not-so-old, and in many cases very miss-understood topics that over the years have led to numerous helicopter accidents and pilot’s deaths. The course looks at current topics from an operational perspective. Subjects include the deadly side effects of fatigue and sleep deprivation, the dangerous and negative impact of dietary supplements on flight crews, how stress can destroy a pilots decision making process, and finally the inner-workings and physiology behind Spatial Disorientation. To register for this course or any of the other great courses offered at this year’s Heli-Expo, go to bit.ly/2kyM3NL and click on the Education Tab, then Professional Education.
