This is the way to learn how you get affected by hypoxia – in flight simulator! Flight Instructor Stefan Nyström at Trafikflyghögskolan Ljungbyhed tries an approach in the 737 simulator in a hypoxic state. In May we successfully installed the hypoxia generator in the 737 simulator at Trafikflyghögskolan. The altitude training reaches a completely new level in simulator where you really can notice the degraded performance in addition to recognizing the physiological symptoms of hypoxia.
