Course Structure

Fundamentals: The Art of Unlearning
In this stage of training it’s all about vertical reference. Seating, visual scans, pickups and set downs will be the focus, paving the path for learning to work the long line. Fundamentals are where the pilot learns to unlearn, then, learn again!

Developing Skill Set: Let’s Dance
In this stage of training, focus is placed on learning to work with the long line as well as the importance of deliberate movements. Here a pilot learns how to lead the line (the dance between the pilot and the line) where he or she wants it to go. Slow, steady, and controlled movements are key in skill development.

BOOK THIS COURSE
Consider what a lack of experience and mission preparedness can cost you.

While pilots have flight experience, many need a more powerful skill set for external-load operations. A lack of readiness and training can lead to expensive consequences such as poor performance, task overload, and accidents.

Training with Volo Mission can be invaluable to your safety, mission preparedness, situational awareness, and successful mission completion.

The Volo Mission full training course gives pilots the essential tools they need to prepare, execute, and succeed.

Combined with the reputable experience and long lining history of our skilled team, Volo Mission is a sought after vertical reference and long line training company.
