High - Altitude Training:


What happens if there is a loss of pressure in your cabin while you are travelling in space?

Prepare for this emergency under the supervision of our experts.

Experience a cabin decompression


WHAT ARE YOU SIMULATING?

In a spacecraft, you can breathe normally because the cabin pressure is kept under control. In case of a malfunction, this pressure can drop, lowering the quantity of available oxygen.

During this training, we expose you to oxygen deprivation under the supervision of our experts.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:


  • You will learn all about the conditions and symptoms associated with hypoxia (oxygen deprivation).
  • You will experience early symptoms so that you can detect and address them on time.
  • You will get an answer to all your questions about cabin decompression.
  • Afterwards, you receive a certificate of completion.

WHOM THE TRAINING IS FOR:


  • Aspiring private astronauts wanting to prepare for space travel. (This is a perfect addition to the existing Astronaut for a Day programme).
  • Companies looking for a high-end team-building exercise.
  • Space enthusiasts looking for an unforgettable experience.
  • Anyone who would like to know what oxygen deprivation feels like.

WHAT THE DAY WILL LOOK LIKE:


  • We welcome you to the Centre for Man in Aviation in Soesterberg, The Netherlands.
  • You will get a short medical check-up to make sure that it is safe for you to perform this exercise.
  • Our experts will explain the concept of hypoxia and guide you through the experience.
  • You will participate in a small group of ten people at the most.
  • You enter our hypobaric chamber, wearing an oxygen mask. We then reduce the atmospheric pressure inside the room to simulate high altitudes.
  • You remove your oxygen mask to experience the symptoms of hypoxia under the supervision of our experts.
  • We will ask you to perform simple tasks, such as writing your name. Afterwards, you will be surprised to see how poorly you performed. Just like a drunk driver, you will think that you are doing fine, while your ability to function gets increasingly compromised.
  • You will learn what the symptoms of hypoxia symptoms are so that you can avoid oxygen emergencies during space travel.
  • You will receive a certificate of completion.
  • You can combine this module with any of the other space training modules.
