Torgoen Swiss watches partners
with Spencer Suderman Airshows to offer specialized flight training that
enhances aviation safety
Wyckoff, NJ April 14, 2008—Torgoen
Swiss, a fast growing manufacturer of wristwatches for aviators and aviation
lifestyle enthusiasts today announced it is launching the Torgoen Academy of
Flight Safety in partnership with Air Show Pilot Spencer Suderman and his
Be-A-Safe-Pilot training program. The academy’s curriculum will deliver
specialized flight training to both private and commercial pilots that will
increase aviation safety by teaching pilots essential recovery and survival
skills not normally offered in either primary or advanced flight training.
“The Torgoen Academy’s training
teaches pilots to be safer by teaching them to deal with departures from normal
flight, upsets due to turbulence and mechanical failures by maintaining a cool
head and applying techniques learned in the school’s aerobatic training aircraft
to resolve the situation at hand. “We literally turn pilots’ upside-down in
real airplanes in order to give them the confidence to fix the problem without
the panic,” said Spencer Suderman, chief flight instructor and air show pilot.
“Expanding the relationship as Torgoen’s brand ambassador and re-naming the
training program will help spread the word throughout the aviation industry that
only through proper training and experience will all pilots become safer
The Torgoen Academy is based at
the Camarillo Airport in Ventura County, California and operates year round
taking full advantage of the predominantly excellent weather in the southwestern
United States. It is the only flight school in Southern California flying the
Pitts Special S-2B high performance biplane.
