Emergency Procedures

Emergency Procedures

Do you know what the top two medical emergencies are on business aircraft and how to handle them? The Emergency Procedures module prepares crewmembers for emergency and abnormal situations that may occur on an aircraft. The module reviews ditching, first aid, fire protection, hijacking, decompression, and other emergency situations. Hands-on demonstration videos show use of fire extinguishers, life rafts, and flares. We can customize this module to show specific procedures with the equipment you carry onboard your aircraft.

The module includes training on VisionSafe's Emergency Vision Assurance System (EVAS). EVAS® is a self-contained system that allows pilots to see flight instruments when there is smoke in the cockpit. This EVAS training addresses use and the proper procedures for deployment.

This module also includes information on the following documents:

FAA Safety Alert for Operators (SAFO):

  • 09008 Proper Identification and Procedures During In-Flight Engine Failures
  • 09013 and Supplement, Fighting Lithium Battery Fires
  • 10004 Contaminated Halon Fire Extinguishers
  • 14006 Circuit Breaker Collars
  • 16001 Risks of Fire or Explosion when Transporting Lithium Batteries
FAA Advisory Circular:
  • 00-46F Aviation Safety Reporting Program
  • 20-42D Hand Fire Extinguishers for use in Aircraft
  • 61-107B Change 1 Aircraft Operations at Altitudes Above 25,000 Feet MSL or Mach Numbers Greater Than .75
  • 120-80A In-Flight Fires
  • 120-87C Use of Child Restraint Systems on Aircraft
  • 150/5200-32B Wildlife Strikes

The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites Emergency training. This training module satisfies that NBAA training recommendation.


After customization, this module satisfies your Emergency Procedures training program curriculum and Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 135.331. We can also add videos demonstrating the use of the emergency exit in your aircraft to satisfy the 24-month Emergency Drill "by demonstration" training curriculum. We can add a module timer to the module to ensure your flight crews meet your minimum required curriculum time in your training program. We use the Emergency section of your General Operations Manual (GOM) to customize the courseware to your procedures.

The module complies with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) training requirement for "emergency procedures training" defined in Chapter,, and of IS-BAO for Flight Crewmember training on Emergency Procedures. The standard is for flight crewmembers to complete the training during initial and every two years thereafter. The Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard NX 6 3.9.3 requires Emergency training.
