Any time a pilot, a hiker, hunter, or even a novice explorer must first consider before taking on any adventure, must first and always be, “am I prepared and confident?” With an opportunity to learn the very basics and up to the most advanced survival techniques from those who know it well, is hardly an opportunity one would want to pass up. There are too few options in the aviation industry for pilots to obtain hands on knowledge in the coveted art of wildland survival. I hope with the help of my close associates and the Aerobatic Company and Flight School, Inc, we can offer another avenue of opportunity for folks to learn this information in the hopes of saving precious lives and resources in the future.
