Supplemental Oxygen Systems
February 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, this seminar will only be available for online viewing. IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED.**
|Supplemental oxygen is required in unpressurized aircraft by regulation above 12,500 MSL and often by good operating practice at lower altitudes. Pilots-in-command must consider the oxygen needs of both crew and passengers when planning flights during which oxygen will be used.
Join us as our Assistant Chief Pilot Brian Eliot discusses the use of supplemental oxygen systems and their usage in flight. In this seminar we will consider the provisioning of oxygen for flight, including both built-in and portable systems, preflight testing of oxygen, briefing and supervision of passengers, and proper dispensing of oxygen in flight. Brian will also examine the major classification of oxygen systems with a focus on the continuous-flow systems common to general aviation. Concluding with recommendations on assembling a personal oxygen kit that satisfies the aircraft and circumstances of the pilot and prospective passengers for flight in unpressurized aircraft.
If you have ever considered using or have used supplemental oxygen methods – don’t miss out on this seminar.
