Success Stories from Ditching Survivors who took SSUSA's training
"Survival Systems USA is by far the best "Real" training I have received as a Flight Attendant after 25 years and many, many training facilities both Commercial and Corporate! I feel more confident than I thought possible with water evacuation and my under water fear!
Thank You for watching my back while under water...upside down! You are all so porfessional and just a great, fun group of people!"
-Stephanie "Shawn" West
"The instructors made sure I understood the information and established a level of confidence in myself. Now if I find myself in a ditching situation, I will have a good chance of surviving."
"Extremely professional and patient. Every aviator should be required to attend this course."
– Erik Enyart
“My first thought was ‘Okay, I know how to deal with this. ’And as I cleared my exit, undid my harness and moved toward the surface, the second thought to run through my brain was, that I knew the egress course was supposed to be worthwhile, but I really did not think I would be putting the training to use within 36 hours of completing it."
– Captain K.H. Jones
“I have been flying for 17 years, both civilian and military. I have done many practice bailout/ditching exercises, but no other training could have better prepared me (for the crash) than what I was taught at Survival Systems.”
– Gerry Corrigan
“While the aircraft was in the process of capsizing, I followed the step by step egress procedures taught by Survival Systems. I found that although disoriented and in a stressful situation, the training quickly came back to me and the whole evolution was just like another run in the METS.”
– Captain P.E. Hitchcock
“An unexpected benefit of the training was my ability to cope with the stress and fear associated with such an incident occurring at night in heavy seas. This course should be mandatory for anyone involved in helicopter over-water operations.”
– MCpl. D.J. McDonald
