Survival Systems USA offers a number of courses to address the risks faced by organizations and individuals as they travel by air, over water, or near water. As technology improves and travel becomes more economical, people are more frequently traveling by plane, helicopter, and boat. Career paths or lifestyles requiring frequent travel by air or water are at the greatest risk for a sudden emergency. Producing the best possible outcomes during these emergencies means training and preparation before the emergency occurs. The urgency for survival training is multiplied when there is the potential to be stranded for an indefinite period of time or when resources are limited. Whether traveling by air, water, or land you could find yourself in a life-threatening situation and in need of survival skills within a matter of seconds. Survival Systems USA provides the knowledge and training that may one day save your life or the life of a loved one.

"In late September 2018, I scheduled a one-day underwater egress course with Survival Systems USA in Groton, Connecticut. I had wanted to take the course for a long time since I fly amphibian aircraft recreationally on a regular basis, but I kept putting it off due to time constraints. I have almost 3,000 hours in amphibian Huskies and Seareys. The course was more than I ever imagined. My anticipated anxiety over being upside down, seat-belted, underwater was quickly calmed by the very capable staff. The cockpit was configured to replicate the Husky I currently fly. After six or seven rollovers and following their system of exiting the cockpit, I felt confident in my new discipline, although it is one that I hope never to have to use. I felt very satisfied with my decision to take the course and had no regrets regarding my investment in order to learn new things about seaplane flying. I was amazed to discover how many things I did not know! Survival Systems USA offered a useful, challenging, and informative learning experience that did not disappoint. I think every seaplane pilot should consider this course." - Jerry Roth January/February 2019 Water Flying Magazine
