Night Flight Concepts® is pleased to announce their partnership with Bolo3 Group. Recognized as leaders in their field, the pairing of the experience and services offered by both companies has created a unique, water safety course for helicopter pilots and crewmembers.
Operator Conducts Practical Egress/Survival Training with Bolo3 Group
The Underwater Egress Training for NVG Operations course teaches critical life saving skills that help pilots, crewmembers and passengers get out of a submerged aircraft after a survivable crash. Through real-life simulations and preparedness activities, the live saving elements and actions needed to survive a helicopter water crash will become second nature.
The Water Survival Training course teaches the skills needed for the survivors of a water crash to continue to live once out of the aircraft. What makes this course different from any other is additional training with NVGs. This training covers situations such as how to handle the situation when you are underwater and your NVGs are still in front of your eyes, or have been knocked off, and become an entanglement issue. This “outside the box” training gives practical application to what has only been discussed before.
“What sets these Underwater Egress/Survival Training courses apart from other courses is the hands-on, real life experience provided through the combined use of NVGs and an underwater simulator,” says Adam Aldous, CEO of Night Flight Concepts®. “The techniques and knowledge learned during this two-part course will provide helicopter pilots and crewmembers with the skills they need to survive a water crash.”
Some of the main skills taught during the courses include:
• Underwater Egress with NVGs
• Emergency Breathing Device Use
• Survival Swim Techniques
• Life Raft Training
• What to expect when rescued
