Testimonials

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for such outstanding work during our recent survival training course (GED3). Your level of expertise and service was well above and beyond what was expected. It is refreshing to see such dedication and spirit associated with such an important discipline. Brian and I learned a great deal from you and will carry your lessons with us until our next training session and well beyond. As for me personally, I’d like to thank you for returning me safely to my family. I am, as they are, grateful for your protection and help. Not only did you keep me safe but you also assisted me in handling/managing an unknown weakness. By helping me climb beyond my learning plateau, through encouragement and motivation, you afforded me the opportunity to achieve real life learning. This is the most positive outcome I could have ever imagined and I owe it all to you great professionals. I know you will sit back and say this is your job, but please know that the effort you put in on a day-in day-out basis changes the real time survival world we live in. You make a difference! There are many that feel this training is of little significance because the “This will never happen to me” syndrome sets in after decades of successful flights, but make no mistake about it, you have prepared us well to survive that one in a million “real life” catastrophe we have now trained for. Facing all the challenges presented to us in our recent Survival Systems USA training has changed me as a professional and as a person.  Brian and I have always doubled down on training, but now we are both even more laser focused on getting better and “SURVIVING” should the need arise and we owe this all to you great men and women. If we are unlucky enough one day to draw that proverbial “short straw” we’ll have the six of you to thank for our survival. Thank you for what you have done for us.  I am personally grateful and hope to return the favor one day soon.  If we can ever be of any help to you please do not hesitate to call." - Aviation Service Operations Leadership

 

"Just recently completed the general emergency duties one day course. These guys really know their stuff and are very professional. The time spent in the pool was really useful. I highly recommend doing the helicopter basket lift. It's cold, but really fun. Even if your job doesn't require it, do it as a team building exercise and hopefully you'll be better prepared for an emergency." - Todd Owen, Gama

 

"Great training and great personnel. Classes were taught in a common sense manner, and explained all of the material in a highly professional manner. CPR training was one of the best training that I have received. Each evolution of water survival training was thoroughly explained, and not at any time did I feel like I could not ask any questions. If your company needs to conduct water survival training, I highly recommend Survival Systems USA." - Pete Herrmann, JEM Air
