About this Presentation
The use of supplemental oxygen in the cockpit is generally not discussed in flight training except for the memorization of FAR Part 91.211. Oxygen usage is generally associated with high performance, turbocharged aircraft flying in the mid-teens to flight levels. Because of this, for most general aviation pilots the use of oxygen can be mysterious. But stories of hypoxia, loss of consciousness, and the insidious effects of oxygen deprivation, either from accident reports or experiencing the effects of hypoxia in a controlled environment like the FAA PROTE (Portable Reduced Oxygen Training Enclosure), are plentiful.
During this presentation we’ll cover:
- The use of supplemental oxygen
- Detecting hypoxic symptoms in flight, and responding to them quickly and correctly
- Supplemental oxygen’s benefits even when not required by regulations
- Answers to viewer questions
Viewers will be able to type in their questions to be answered during the event. We’ll explain how to do so at the beginning of the webinar.
Although this American Bonanza Society program is oriented toward pilots of Beech airplanes, the discussion, techniques and procedures described are valuable to the pilot of any airplane.
