Aircraft Egress

If you regularly fly over water as a pilot or passenger this is a must view video. As a passenger, Bryan Webster experienced a crash landing into water early in his aviation career. What Bryan learned from surviving that life threatening situation stayed with him throughout his 25 year plus commercial aviation career. While looking for an aircraft egress training course in the mid 1990's, he discovered that none existed for pilots outside of the military, so he recognized the need and developed one himself. In this video we learn the importance of taking an egress training course and being prepared for an emergency over water.

Tips

After surviving a crash landing into water as a passenger early in his aviation career, then flying as a commercial pilot for more than 25 years and spending fifteen years teaching aircraft egress techniques, Bryan Webster knows a lot about how to prepare for and survive an aircraft emergency over water.

Here's a sample of some aircraft egress tips and techniques taken from this course.
