Safety course for private staff introduced by TAG Global Training


TAG Global Training is now offering a Private Staff Aircraft Safety Training course. The syllabus has been designed for private staff with no aviation experience, who may be required to undertake duties on an owner’s aircraft, or frequently travel without cabin crew.

Topics on the half-day course include how to handle pilot incapacitation, the physiological effects of flying, basic fire-fighting techniques, procedures for landing in water and donning life jackets, and other essential safety aspects.

TAG Global Training says the course is ideal for PAs, close protection teams, household staff and even grooms travelling with horses. The company also offers a tailored Yacht Crew Aircraft Safety Training module, aimed at yacht crew who have no aviation experience but may be required to undertake onboard duties.

Courses are taught by in-house professional instructors at TAG’s Global Training Centre at TAG Farnborough Airport, UK, or upon request, in private homes.

“The landscape of aviation training has changed significantly in recent years,” said Debbie Elliott (above), training manager at TAG Global Training. “Owners of aircraft with less than 19 seats are not obligated to have cabin crew, so the trusted staff of these high-net-worth individuals inherently undertake equivalent responsibilities. The course will therefore be of essential use and support to such personnel, who are frequently required to be on board, and in the event of an incident occurring, they will then feel empowered with knowledge to not only help themselves to safety, but also the principal and family.”
