Welcome to the FLIT Media Page

Paul Ludick and John Comley welcome you warmly to the official launch of FLIT: Forced Landing Into Trees, a skill-set intended to provide GA pilots with more, and hopefully, lifesaving options if that fateful time ever arrives for a forced emergency landing, and when options are few.

With over 450 pages of training backed by over 90 case studies, physics, and testing, FLIT: Forced Landing Into Trees has been three long hard years in the making.

What has been really frustrating for both of us is seeing GA accidents continue unabated at the time that we were burning the midnight oil, knowing that this exact FLIT: Forced Landing Into Trees training may well have allowed some pilots and, at times, along with their passengers, to survive potentially fatal accidents, and to then return to their families.
