Good Experts are Good Teachers


If you're getting ready for a trial in which you need to explain scientific or technical concepts, it can be helpful to have a skilled teacher on the stand -- partly because teachers have learned how to teach others, but just as important, because their work teaches them every day to remember where their students are starting. Teachers know the hands-on demonstrations that get the point across, the analogies to daily life.

DVI's Aviation Experts all have a passion for teaching and instructing. Our experts teach within the mainstream of aviation, and have trained university students, pilots, mechanics, attorneys, claims adjusters, and manufacture representatives.


DVI will customize/tailor an aircraft accident investigation (AAI) training program for your organization, which can be from one to five days in length per course. These training programs provide a "real world” understanding of scientific methodologies and techniques utilized during an AAI. DVI’s courses specialize in detailed and complex aircraft accident/wreckage reconstruction that includes aircraft systems troubleshooting, in-flight breakups, mid-air collisions, crashworthiness and survivability, fires and explosions, material science and failure analysis, tribology, witness interviews, and human factors (flight and maintenance). The content of these courses have been developed and taught for educational institutions, FAA-sponsored workshops, and aviation companies that include Lewis University, Wichita State University, SAE Aerospace, and Boeing Aircraft Company.
