Today we performed our annual Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) at Käringön. As a leading helicopter operator we want to give our crew the best and most extensive training possible.
We flew with two AS350 and one EC120B down to Kärringön from our HQ at ESOW. The course include both theory and practical training. Focus is of course on the practical part where at the course end, the crew member should be able to evacuate the helicopter under water in a methodically manner. Although we don't usually perform missions over water, we find it very important to have the skills to be able to evacuate the helicopter in case of a ditching situation.
