Bristow Teams for HUET Training
Leesburg, Fla.-based Rotorworld Institute has established a joint venture with Bristow Academy to provide courses in helicopter underwater egress training (HUET). The first course took place in October and combined two classroom hours with six hours of hands-on instruction. This HUET class is aimed at offshore transport pilots, crew and passengers. Topics include a basic overview of underwater escape from both rotor and fixed-wing aircraft. Initial training is held in Florida, but the class and training units are mobile, allowing on-site training for operators.
