About Course

This course covers the physiological, aerodynamic, and environmental hazards associated with high altitude flight, including: • The composition, circulation, and properties of the Earth’s atmosphere. • High altitude aerodynamics and the dangers associated. • Environmental factors specific to high altitude flight, including jet stream winds, clear air turbulence, thunderstorms, icing, low ambient temperatures, volcanic ash, and wake turbulence. • Aircraft pressurization and oxygen systems. • High altitude physiology including hypoxia, hyperventilation, decompression sickness, barotrauma, and the effects of cosmic radiation. • Abnormal and emergency procedures relating to gradual decompression, rapid decompression, and emergency descent. • High altitude accident case study
