Through our hands-on approach, our expertise allows for a richer education. Our expert-led training provides a higher quality instructional experience, preparing crewmembers for medical events that may occur during flight. Management of in-flight illness and injury training is necessary to ensure safe and successful operations. Instructors train crew to learn how to respond to medical emergencies, leveraging on-the-ground MedLink doctors and the MedAire medical kit. Training includes victim assessment, CPR, and AED skills, as well as adapted techniques for the cabin, environment, and altitude.
