OMG NO HUET Training!
From the get go, we were told the trip to the ship was a three hour helicopter ride. This required HUET (Helicopter Underway Escape) training. Guess I should have read the fine print!
The program is designed for persons traveling to offshore installations/vessel via helicopter. The course provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge in emergency response related to helicopter evacuation and escape from a ditched/capsized
helicopter using personal safety equipment to include an Emergency Breathing System (EBS).
So far so good ....until you learn they are dropping you in a pool upside down and you are to release the seat belt and find a window to swim out. Fortunately, there are drivers available to help if needed.
Recently, we were advised a boat will transport us to the main ship. Although it is a longer voyage, I will be dry and so will my hair.
