The Royal Australian Air Force has selected Melbourne-based Biomedtech Australia to provide its GO2Altitude hypoxia training systems to the new Air Academy at RAAF East Sale.

The systems are to comprise of a six-person fully computerised and integrated classroom, with a two-person cockpit procedural trainer. Go2Altitude systems are purpose designed for hypoxia training, including a flight simulator for the purpose of recognising hypoxia.

Training can be done as a crew or in formation, with hypoxia segment secretly delivered in a helmet or oxygen mask in order to help the pilot(s) recognise the symptoms.

Biomedtech managing director, Oleg Bassovitch said "each person's experience is individual" with hypoxia, and recognising oncoming symptoms is incredibly important.

Hypoxia is the deprivation of oxygen to the brain, and is considered one of the biggest dangers when flying a plane.
