27th October 2018 - Spend a full day with Claude Vuichard and the Leocopter – Air Services crew

One Day Helicopter Safety Seminar

Based on decades of helicopter flight operations in the Swiss Alps and many search & rescue missions, Claude Vuichard professionalized additional life-saving maneuvers.

Now it is time to change your pilots’ life and cockpit habits

Due to the fact that daily helicopter operations are conducted most of the time in the height-velocity diagram (also called dead man curve), requires high attention of each pilot and fast reactions on unpredicted situations. Most important is to recognize it fast and apply the correct actions to prevent any accidents. But this is also true for all other operations.

Furthermore, the training procedures haven’t change the last years. “The vast majority of flight instructors are being educated as decades ago” Claude states and realizes that the implementation of new methods is thus hindered or very slow.

We offer the opportunity to attend a full day training with Claude Vuichard to cover all important topics in one session. The new methods will lead to a significant reduction of accidents and incidents – it even has the potential to save many lives every year and the associated damage and insurance cases.
