The decision to continue or abort take off is a crucial one. FlightSafety is addressing this by introducing a four hour sim session for G550 pilots, to help them make the right call.

FlightSafety International now offers an Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go Recurrent course for pilots who fly the Gulfstream G550.

“Our new course is designed to review and reinforce the skills and lessons learned during the Initial course,” says senior vice president, operations Dann Runik. “In addition to gaining proficiency in the Go/No-Go decision-making process, this invaluable course gives pilots another opportunity to fly their aircraft in the safe environment of a simulator under the high stress and demands of an emergency return to the airport after takeoff.”

Pilots will face up to 13 new scenarios during the four hour simulator session. Each scenario will require a decision by the flight crew to either continue or abort the takeoff. The course will also help to validate the operator's specific takeoff briefings by testing them against various airports, environmental conditions and weights.

The course is now offered at FlightSafety's Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia. It will also be available in Dallas, Texas; Long Beach, California; and Wilmington, Delaware in the near future. Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go Recurrent courses are also being developed for the Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G280 aircraft, and will be available later this fall.

FlightSafety has been the official factory authorised training organisation for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for more than four decades. Training for the complete line of Gulfstream aircraft is delivered by highly experienced and qualified instructors using close to 30 full flight simulators, as well as other advanced training devices and equipment. Training is also available at FlightSafety's Learning Center at London Farnborough airport in the UK.
