Georgia State Patrol Attend 3 day H.U.E.T Exercise

The Pilots and Tactical Flight Officers of the GSP Aviation Division recently attended a 3 day safety seminar in Savannah Georgia. The seminar was host­ ed by the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (A.L.E.A) and included pilots and TFOs from various parts of the

country. The main objective of these seminars is to pro­ mote safety and crew coordi­ nation among the unit and to share training ideas associat­ ed with daily operations. The seminar also allows the opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas with different aviation units on how they conduct certain missions and share in their debriefing allow­ ing units to learn from their mishaps as well as successes. The GSP Pilots and TFOs were afforded the opportunity to participate in a H.U.E.T (Helicopter Underwater

Evacuation Training) exer­ cise. This program is designed to teach pilots and crew mem­ bers how to increase their sur­ vival chances in a crash into a water environment. Each member was placed into a “cockpit” style cage and rotat­ ed upside down in the water. The member was then required to implement the trained procedures to safely evacuate the cockpit and swim to the surface. All pilots and TFOs successfully com­ pleted the exercise and received a certificate of com­ pletion. ◆
