Angle of Attack AEROnautics flight school supports MDT and Peak Inc., winter survival skills training for aviators and non aviators that may be stranded in the wilderness. Please view the below information from MDT Aeronautics Division about an upcoming important clinic.
2020 MDT Aeronautics Winter Survival Clinic
The clinic is geared toward all aviation pilots in the event an emergency landing takes place and survival is necessary until help arrives; however, these skills can be used by anyone that finds themselves in a survival situation. Also included is emergency medical training.
Meals (except Saturday evening) and lodging will be provided. Rooms have been reserved for Friday evening at the Motor Lodge Inn in Seeley Lake. Classroom instruction will start at 5:00 p.m. Friday evening at the Quick Response Unit building (QRU) adjacent to the Seeley Lake Airport campground. Participants will meet Saturday morning for breakfast and a brief equipment check and then head onto the Seeley Lake Airport where participants will learn techniques on winter survival, and later spend the night in their own survival shelters after making and eating bring-your-own dinner.
Clinic cost is $150.00 with hotel or $60.00 without hotel (both options include 4 meals). A 50% deposit is required to reserve your space. The clinic starts at 5:00 p.m. on January 24 and ends at 11:00 a.m. on January 26. For registration form and clothing and equipment list call MDT Aeronautics at 406.444.2506 or email MDTSafteyEd@mt.gov or visit https://www.mdt.mt.gov/aviation/events.shtml.
