Advancing Pilot Training

High Altitude
Operations Training

Hands-on experience is the safest and most effective way to recognize even the subtlest signs of hypoxia.

The main objective of the course is to present and experience in-flight psycho-physiological consequences of hypoxia - oxygen starvation.

During the course of training pilot will experience signs and symptoms’ of oxygen deprivation in a fully controlled environment.

With the use of non-invasive ROBD2 device (Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device) by Environics, we are able to practically demonstrate different stages of oxygen starvation during the flight optionally in a Cirrus full motion simulator or a fixed based desktop simulator of different GA aircraft.

Understanding how the mind and body interact

Aviation is built on two fundamental values: the aircraft and the pilots who operate them. The most traditional approach towards flight training today focuses on just one of these aspects: the aircraft and how it flies.

However, in the most demanding situations, especially when it comes to safety, a more combined approach is being introduced. More experienced flight trainers are realizing that developing a pilot’s overall flying skills is as important as learning how to operate a specific aircraft’s controls.

Flight training
for the future

Psychophysiology -- the way in which the mind and body react -- is an essential study in aeronautics and aviation. So much so that an immense part of research conducted in institutions, such as NASA, is carried out in medical and psychological laboratories.

Their discoveries have aided our understanding of typical general aviation flight tasks and how the human mind and body both learn and react in flight. This has started an evolution in flight training theory, pioneered by Cirrus. As a general aviation leader, they actively address the need to rethink and relearn flight training with the skills of the pilot at the heart.

Aero Poznań’s
Human Lab

At Aero Poznań, we understand the advantages to this approach. We strive to do everything we can to both teach our students to the height of their abilities and provide them with the most complete training experience possible.

This is why we created the Aero Poznań Human Lab, a professional biofeedback and neuro-training center as a part of our Aviation Psychophysiology Department.

The Lab has two major goals. Firstly, we support scientists who are focused on key problems related to the human mind and body in flight. Secondly, we seek out and gather all available research on this topic to aid in our understanding and to develop our innovative flight training.

This means our students have access to exclusive resources that help improve their skills and become better pilots. Using the most enhanced diagnostic devices, we can strengthen their mental and behavioral readiness to the most demanding challenges during the flight.
