We also believe that simulators, centrifuges and hypobaric chambers are only a part of the equation. They are useful teaching tools but, to achieve competency, a student must experience and have time in the real thing. This is why all BST courses include hands on time with real vehicles. Any course that provides only simulation is purely entertainment.
The goal of BST is to turn out personnel who we would trust to service and fly the vehicles we travel on.
