You will also gain extensive hands-on practical training and familiarisation in fire-fighting and smoke protection techniques and the use of fire-fighting and smoke protection equipment found on board most private, business and commercial aircraft. Crew roles and responsibilities and the importance of effective communication during fire-fighting will be demonstrated and discussed. A review of recent aviation fire and smoke incidents will be conducted.
