This is an exciting opportunity for Seaplane Pilots in NY!
If you are a Seaplane CFI with specific experience, please contact your local Safety Program Manager to discuss how you can help to put one of these courses on!

Advanced Rescue Swimmers from the US Coast Guard (USCG) Air Station Detroit are teaming up with the local FAA Safety Team to provide this exclusive training to local pilots and flight instructors.
FAASTeam Lead Representative Bob Fratangelo will facilitate the training along with other crews from USCG Air Station Detroit including two rescue Swimmers and other AUXAIR crew members.
The training is divided into two segments. Ground training and pool training. The ground training will include safe water ditching procedures, egress procedures from ditched aircraft, cold water survival techniques and more. The pool training will simulate actual egress from an inverted, underwater trainer!
Be advised, limited slots are available for this training. After all the slots are filled, registrants can expect to receive an email with their specific time slot. Please be patient, it may be several days before you receive this email.
Special thanks to the Rush-Henrietta School for providing the facility for this exclusive training.
Register while you still can. I expect these seats to fill fast! If you can’t get in, let them know that you are interested! It’s important for the FAAST team to measure how well individual classes are received and I am sure they will pay attention to more requests.
