Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET)

The eight-hour course includes two hours of classroom and six hours of practical instruction.

Demand for HUET training has increased in recent years as oil and gas companies move into deeper offshore waters and rely more on helicopter transportation to rigs and platforms.  Rotorworld’s expertise in the highly specialized HUET training and track record of successful experience-based programs have been developed by leading aviation educators and safety experts.

The HUET course is for pilots, crew and passengers transported offshore or frequently flying over water in a helicopter or fixed wing aircraft.  We provide a basic Level I HUET and Advanced Level II from introduction for learning how to escape safely from an aircraft underwater that has had an emergency landing over a body of water, whether it is offshore, a lake or even a flooded river to the Advanced Level II.  In a controlled pool or open water environment, attendees experience swim and tread water instruction and are trained in the use of emergency underwater breathing equipment during several fully supervised immersed “runs” in the underwater egress simulator unit. The training is provided in Vero Beach, Florida, although the unit is fully mobile and can be provided at any customer location.

Our mission is to provide excellence in aviation and specialized public safety training that is unsurpassed in the industry.
