Course Design and Locations

To maintain our commitment to the rotorcraft community as a world class organization, we pioneered and implemented the commercial rotorcraft industries first of two solely owned and operated Search & Rescue /Tactical Training Academies (SART/TAC)….allowing full autonomy over our business. Our first location began operational training in Mesa, Arizona in 2013 and was quickly followed by our second location in Nîmes-Garons, France in 2015.

Tactical Tools

These training facilities offer state of the art Search & Rescue / Tactical training utilizing Smart Boards for presentations material, Virtual Hoist Simulators and full cabin configurable Hoist Procedural Towers. These devices allow customers training in the challenging initial stages of Search and Rescue Tactical operations in a realistic, safe and cost effective environment prior to ever setting foot in an aircraft. This “virtual world” allows for a stronger “application / correlation” level of learning all the while reducing the customers overall live flight training time by 20%- 35%, providing a significant cost savings to the customer.

As with all of our training courses, customers are still presented the option to conduct 100% of their training programs in their aircraft, at their location.
