Course Content

Search and Rescue (SAR)

It has been said, that the life expectancy of an injured survivor decreases as much as 80% during the first 24 hours, while the chances of survival of uninjured survivors rapidly diminishes after the first 3 days.  Helicopter pilots can play a valuable role in the search and rescue of those injured, lost, or missing

Through ground and flight training, the applicant will learn to efficiently, effectively, and safely enact SAR procedures and perform the overall duties of a SAR captain.  Pilots of Vantage Aviation have extensive experience in the Fleet Air Arm of the British Royal Navy and can pass on their knowledge and skills to those wishing to enter the SAR field.
