External Load Courses

From piloting skills to human performance training, Volo Mission offers a specialized training curriculum for the external load industry drawing on thirty years of professional experience.


Volo Mission provides vertical reference/long line training, primarily in the R44 Raven II, and has access to additional aircraft types, including the Bell 206/407 [left seat pilot].

We can also accommodate clients who prefer to train in their own aircraft to support and supplement corporate in-house aviation training departments and offer the option to train on-site at the client’s location. Please let us know your needs, and we will work to create a tailored proposal for your training.

For individuals registered for the course who may be flying a personal aircraft, Volo Mission provides overnight parking on-site or at a nearby hangar located at the Sulphur Springs Municipal Airport [KSLR] that offers exceptional business and aviation services.

Once a course start date is confirmed, a deposit will be required to hold your spot in the course.

Payments are non-refundable; however, the deposit/payment can be transferred to a future training course within 18 months of the original date of scheduled training.

Volo Mission primarily conducts two courses each month.

Contact us for upcoming available course start dates.
