Safety is everything in aviation, but if an accident does happen and there are survivors, then what...? Scandlearn created an in-depth Survival course that demonstrates how to survive a crash (landing) in an unknown environment until rescue comes.

In rare cases, a crash (landing) may unfortunately occur. Therefore it is vital to do everything to 1) crash land the plane as safe as possible; and 2) have adequate knowledge on how to survive after a crash, including first aid, finding food and clean water, and building shelter. Scandlearn’s course discusses survival scenarios of extreme and secluded environments to instil endurance and the ability to help others when only the bare basics are available.

Topics Included
  • Survival and emergency equipment on board
  • Survival in: polar, jungle, desert and aquatic environments
  • Dealing with infections, food rations and wild animals
  • Case study: Louis Zamperini
  • Full ditching procedures and a touchdown on water
  • Hunt, gather, build and help
  • Extreme temperatures
