AMS have been at the forefront of disabled aircraft recovery training since 1988, with over 1,250 participants trained to date (figures to Jan 2020). We are the only aircraft recovery equipment specialists to offer training at two dedicated training facilities (in the UK and UAE), alongside options for training at customers’ locations and/or via SKYPE.

AMS’s Training Managers have over 40 years of experience between them and have been involved in numerous aircraft recoveries during their pre-AMS careers. As a result, AMS provide some of the most insightful and practical “hands on” training experiences available.

Our Training Managers also offer recovery incident management advice for aircraft recovery teams dealing with disabled aircraft recoveries (this is an additional “consultancy service” available to customers who have purchased AMS equipment).

High quality training is vital to ensure aircraft recovery teams preserve the integrity and structure of a disabled aircraft (commercial or military). Course participants learn how aircraft should be recovered quickly, efficiently and safely (in accordance with IATA recommendations and the appropriate Aircraft Recovery Manual or Aircraft Recovery Document).

Participants train on AMS’s industry-leading aircraft recovery equipment systems, allowing them to recover a full-size aircraft. Our dedicated Training Facilities in the UK and UAE enable teams to practice their techniques on terrain and in climate conditions that reflect the conditions they will encounter at their own airport.

Our theory/practical “hands on” courses are designed for Aircraft Recovery teams, Airport Fire and Rescue Service personnel, Operations and Emergency Control Centre staff, Insurance Assessors and aircraft engineers. While our incident awareness and management courses are ideal for Operational Managers, Compliance Managers and key-decision-makers at airports, airport authorities, airlines or military air force bases.

AMS also provide options for designing course content specific to the needs of airports, airlines or military air bases.

AMS aircraft recovery equipment is not available for hire or loan to airports or military air bases because it may be required for training purposes, or be offsite for servicing, repairs, or re-certification.
