The SCSI Crash Lab
SCSI has assembled several exhibits from all over the world to allow our students a practical hands-on approach to investigation training. We routinely set aside dedicated time within the Aircraft Accident Investigation (AAI), Helicopter Accident Investigation (HAI), Gas Turbine Accident Investigation (GTAI), and Fire and Explosion Investigation (FEI) courses for a practical application in the Crash Lab of techniques discussed in the classroom. For example, the AAI course has two full days of crash laboratory investigations beginning with small, general aviation aircraft and progressing in tasks to a complex military jet trainer. Below are some illustrative pictures of the crash lab and crash lab activities.
