Professional pilots spend the majority of their flight time at high altitudes, making hypoxia awareness training an extremely valuable resource.

For corporate participants, this High-Altitude and Hypoxia Awareness Training meets the requirements of International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), paragraph 5.4.

Students experience symptoms of hypoxia at a simulated altitude of up to 30,000 feet in this lab. Under the supervision of qualified instructors, participants are able to experience their personal symptoms of hypoxia while performing cognitive and motor flight-related tasks and then correct by donning the airline-style oxygen masks.


  • Eight student positions with headsets and airline-style quick don oxygen masks
  • Frasca Mentor Advanced Aviation Training Device simulating a Cessna 172 with G-1000 avionics
