Fixed Wing Underwater Escape Training

This course is similar to the Helicopter Underwater Escape Training Course but is specific for fixed wing aircraft.

The course is essential for anyone who operates in fixed wing aircraft in areas that include over or near water. The course teaches students the knowledge and skills to safely exit from a fixed wing aircraft when ditched in water and how to survive whilst awaiting rescue.

The course includes all aspects of pre-flight preparation, crash survival procedures, practical underwater escape drills, sea survival techniques, medical considerations and the use of safety and survival equipment. Together with practical in water simulated ditching and escape drills and sea survival procedures this training can be applied to peacetime of hostile operations.
