After the Crash: Surviving an Aircraft Accident

Of the millions of GA flights every year, only a few end with unplanned off-airport landings. But even though the odds of a crash are slim, the potential consequences are harsh—which is why smart pilots prepare and take basic precautions.

That’s where our new seminar comes in. From route planning and emergency rations to signal mirrors and sat phones, our presenters take a user-friendly, common sense approach at maximizing your chances of survival and rescue after a crash. We’ll talk about:

  • The essential ingredients of a good survival kit
  • Simple but effective ways to help searchers find you
  • The first steps you should take after a crash
  • Survival strategies while awaiting rescue

Here's what pilots are saying about our safety seminars

"...a pilot who saw the Takeoffs and Landings seminar last year says that she thinks our advice to "land straight ahead" may have saved her life this past year when she had an engine out. She uses the technique we teach of "spring loading" herself on every takeoff, and so she was able to instantly respond when the engine did fail. Even was able to stay on the runway!"

"A very potent presentation. Left me with a few, but powerful tools that I feel I could stick to in an emergency."

"The best I have been to — this was extremely beneficial."

"Good, fast-moving presentation — very practical with varied examples."

"Very good presentation! The instructor had the audience thinking through the entire evening."
