Advanced Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) for Gulfstream GV/G450/G550/G650 Operators

In-flight loss of control represents the single greatest cause of fatal aviation accidents in the last decade. Our all new Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Course focuses on preventing in-flight loss of control, and recovery from upset if prevention is not possible. This training is accomplished in one of our state-of-the-art simulators designed with an aerodynamic model that replicates the flight envelope from full aerodynamic stall to speeds well beyond VMO/MMO. The new aerodynamic model was developed by FlightSafety using actual flight test data, and approved by senior Gulfstream experimental test pilots who did the initial flight tests of the G550 aircraft. The new aerodynamic model will allow pilots to safely experience and recover from full aerodynamic stall and high speed events in a way that would be far too dangerous to experience in the aircraft.

Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No Go Course Now Available for GIV/GV/G450/G550/G650 Operators

FlightSafety International and Gulfstream have introduced a new Rejected Takeoff course. In keeping with its commitment to promote best practices in safety, Gulfstream has updated its philosophy on takeoff briefings and the go/no-go decision. This philosophy is incorporated in the Pilot Training Handbook for all Gulfstream models. During this four-hour course, each crew member will face 18 different V1 scenarios, requiring a decision by the flight crew to either continue the takeoff or abort. In addition to gaining proficiency in the go/no-go decision-making process, this invaluable course also gives two pilots an opportunity to fly their aircraft under the high stress and demands of an emergency return. Most pilots have never operated their aircraft with the level of aggressiveness required to get back to the airport quickly under emergency conditions. Each pilot will have the opportunity to practice multiple emergency return scenarios to proficiency.


Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go Training

Pilot's learn through a series of V1 decision scenarios.

Advanced Energy Management for Gulfstream GV/G450/G550/G650 Operators

The Advanced Energy Management Course focuses on the physics of operating Gulfstream aircraft during the descent phase of flight. With the completion of up to 10 different scenarios in each 2-hour simulator period, Gulfstream pilots will learn the tools available to understand their “energy state” at any given point on the descent. By utilizing these tools, pilots will be able to predict in advance whether or not they will meet stabilized approach criteria. This will allow flight crews to act much earlier than before in resolving any high energy problems while they are still easily handled, leading to far more stabilized approaches.

Advanced CRM/Human Factors LOFT for Gulfstream GV/G450/G550/G650 Operators

The Advanced CRM/Human Factors LOFT (Line Oriented Flight Training) event is a highly integrated and challenging training event created to assess CRM aspects of a flight crew’s performance during a long range international flight. During the flight, aircraft issues are encountered that significantly impact the passengers which require complex decision making by the crew. An optimal outcome for the passengers and crew hinges upon the crew’s competency in: coordination, communication, monitoring skills, intervention protocols, resilience to unforeseen events and response to a startling event. The crew’s proficiency in CRM (non-technical) skills will be highlighted and selected aspects identified for subsequent discussion. The LOFT requires 4 hours in the simulator for a crew of 2 pilots. The objective of the course is to show that no matter how competent one might be technically, weaknesses in communication and CRM skills can often lead to an unsatisfactory or unexpected outcome.

Gulfstream G650 Training Coming to Farnborough

Training for the Gulfstream G650 aircraft will be offered at FlightSafety's Learning Center located at the Farnborough airport in the United Kingdom. Training is expected to begin in March 2017 following Level D qualification of the simulator. This will be the fourth training location and fifth simulator for Gulfstream G650. Two simulators for the aircraft are installed at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia. The others are in service at FlightSafety’s Centers in Long Beach, California, and Wilmington, Delaware. The new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator being built for the Gulfstream G650 will feature the latest advances in technology including the VITAL 1100 visual system.

FlightSafety App Upgrades For Midsize Gulfstream Operators

iFlashCards and iFlightDECK are now available for FlightSafety clients through the FlightSafety App.  iFlashCards help focus learning on those cards not as well known.  iFlightDECK is an interactive cockpit poster that helps clients learn systems from the pilot’s seat.  iFlashCards are available for the G100, G150, G200, and G280.  The iFlightDECK is available on the G100 and G280.  More updates are in development and will be released soon.


Contact the Dallas Learning Center for more information.
GIII iFlashCards Now Available On The FlightSafety App

The GIII iFlashCards are part of the FlightSafety iPad app including Pilot Training Manual, Flight Deck poster, Client Guide, and more. Spaced repetition learning has been implemented in the iFlashCards allowing you to rate yourself on each card. If you rate yourself low on a card, that card will be shown more often. If you rate yourself  high on a card, it will be shown less often. This reinforces what you have already learned before moving on to new material.

Gulfstream G450/G550 Operational Day Flow Recurrent

As the old saying goes, it’s better to show than to tell. That’s the whole idea behind Operational Day Flow - enhanced recurrent training now available for the G550 aircraft in Dallas, Long Beach, Savannah, and Wilmington. The new training approach covers all aircraft systems, while using real world, operationally-based flight scenarios as the instructional basis. The realistic, hands-on instruction combines scenarios, multimedia, and facilitated classroom discussion to promote a greater knowledge of aircraft systems and how they interact with each other. This program will engage clients in decision making processes relevant to phases-of-flight. Through facilitated classroom activities and discussions, clients will develop a stronger foundation for resolving flight threats and abnormal situations.
