Cover for the book Helicopter Safety

This publication is Lesson 7 of Unit 5 of the Rotary Drilling Series (RDS)

By 2005, in the Gulf of Mexico, over 2.5 million passengers were flown to and from offshore rigs and over 1.3 million flights with 389,544 hours in the air were made by the nearly 600 helicopters. This full-color training manual provides offshore personnel and visitors with a comprehensive overview of routine travel safety on transport helicopters, especially between the shore and offshore oil and gas drilling operations.

The book covers helicopter operation, helideck safety, boarding, emergency equipment and cargo loading procedures. The book also gives information about the knowledge and skills needed to properly react and survive helicopter ditching at sea including bracing for a crash, rescue systems, deploying and using life rafts, using the sea anchor, underwater abandonment, and waiting for rescue.
