Escape from the submerged aircraft.
Pilots of light aircraft and helicopters occasionally have to make the decision they hope they’ll never have to make – to ditch in water. Having survived the impact with the water, the next step is crucial for pilot and passengers – how to escape from the submerged aircraft.
The standard course comprises 3 simulated ditches in our custom-built “Dunker” – a capsule representative of the cabin of the majority of commercial helicopters and small aircraft.
A flat ditch is followed by a submerged 45° exit, and finally by an inverted 180° escape drill.
All ditches are supervised by experienced instructors, with safety divers ready to assist in the pool if required.
You can also do the dunker for fun! Honestly, you will enjoy it. For group bookings and parties see Corporate Events.
Andark’s on-site retail facility offers a comprehensive range of safety equipment, lifejackets and survival suits.
