With many residents making use of float plan and helicopter travel around the North Coast whether for business purposes or tourism plans, a new safety course might be of interest for those that are frequent travellers around the region.
Pacific Paramedics is making plans to offer a Seaplane/helicopter Safety Course in Prince Rupert for both Pilots and Passengers, providing training for unforeseen aviation incidents.
|The Earl Mah Aquatic Centre will|
be in use as part of an Aviation
Safety training program this month
The Dry program provides instruction on what to do and expect in the event of a seaplane water emergency, with such topics as Personal Flotation Device's, life raft usage, rescue and buoyancy among the items for review.
The Dry program, is a pre-requisite for the Wet Egress Pool Program, which is a full day course that reviews much of the Dry program notes and then puts that knowledge into active simulation.
The three days in Prince Rupert run from July 26 to the 28th.
The cost for both courses is 425 dollars.
You can learn more about the program from the website egresstraining.ca or by calling 778-884-4669, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
