This course includes Academic training and SD flights in a Spatial Disorientation Trainer and Academic training with a hypoxia demonstration flight in an Altitude Chamber. Night Vision Academic Training is provided for unaided night vision.

Motion Physiology (1 Day Program) – The course covers how motion leads to Spatial Disorientation and motion sickness. This course provides academic instruction on how people process perceived information and the process of Perception. Types of Spatial Disorientation and associated illusions caused by motion. Visual and Vestibular Systems. How to prevent Spatial Disorientation from occurring. How to manage and resolve an in-flight episode of Spatial Disorientation. This course includes Academic training and flights in a Spatial Disorientation Simulator.

Motion Sickness Desensitization (3 Week Program) – This course introduces the physiological, psychological and behavioral phenomena which often lead to some form of motion sickness. Trainees become familiar with the basic techniques of muscle relaxation and diaphragmatic breathing and are taught how to coach subjects to control their physiological responses to motion. Academic course and flights in a motion simulator. Motion Sickness Desensitization Program is a three (3) week program of subject training and motion adaption in a motion Simulator.
