Helo Dunker training by the Hellenic Navy


Yesterday I participated in the Helo Dunker training of the Hellenic Navy Helicopter School in Kotroni Naval Fort. (Marathonas).

The purpose of the dunker training is to expose aircrews to the experience and related sensations of an aircraft ditching and capsized into the water, while providing them with necessary knowledge and skills to egress safely from it.

It was an amazing experience that really raises your confidence if needed to deal with such situations. Theoretical and practical training was received on use of emergency equipment, egress at various ditching scenarios including day and night conditions, as well as rescue hoist procedures.

The certificate received is recognized by both military and civilian authorities.
