Brief Description:

-Seats still available click on link inside-  Join Patient AirLift Services (PALS) at Legacy Aviation at North East Philadelphia Airport to experience the Portable Reduced Oxygen Training Enclosure (PROTE) Chamber. PALS is thrilled to host the FAA's Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) and their team for this unique training experience.  Training is open to PALS members as well as the active general aviation community.

The reduced oxygen simulation will be conducted in the Portable Reduced Oxygen Training Enclosure (PROTE). The enclosure simulates the equivalent of a 25,000 ft. altitude.
