Recent incidents such as numerous oil and gas industry helicopter ditching events along with the high-profile US Airways Flight 1549 ditching in the Hudson River in New York highlight that this type of event can happen at any time to anyone.

Embry-Riddle Worldwide has now teamed with Antipodean Aviation of Australia to provide industry-leading emergency water landing (aircraft ditching) awareness and survival training specific to both fixed wing and rotary wing flying.

Beyond extended over-water flights, this training can be useful for an emergency water landing into a lake, river or bay since that may be better than trying to land in a residential area over a city or in rough timbered terrain.

This program includes information on pre-flight planning and emergency water landing techniques for airplanes and helicopters, as well as egress from a submerged aircraft cabin and sea survival techniques, including life preserver and life raft familiarization, and search and rescue operations.

Course Options:

  • Aircraft Ditching, Escape and Survival, the general aviation course (for Recreational, Sport, Private and Commercial operations for both fixed wing and helicopters; similar to the Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) course but more comprehensive)
  • Aircraft Ditching, Escape and Survival with Emergency Breathing Systems (EBS) course, designed for flight crews who use emergency breathing systems such as the HABD, HEED or Survival Egress Air devices (SEA)

This couse is delivered via two (2) phases:

  • Theory - Delivered online through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Learning Management System, enabling you to take the theory training on your own time and at your own pace.  This part of the training is self-guided and delivered online with instructor support available.  Assessment for this phase is undertaken via multiple choice quizzes at the end of each module.
  • Practical - Delivered either at our training facilities worldwide, including on our Prescott, AZ Campus at the Robinson Safety Institute.  Our simulator devices are mobile and training can be conducted at customer facilities with the proper swimming pool.  Minimum participant quantities apply.
