Offshore Helicopter Ditching and Survival Training Program (HDSTP)
The Helicopter Ditching & Survival Training Program (HDSTP) provides detailed information ranging from governmental and industry aviation standards to specific survival techniques associated with a helicopter ditching event.
The HDSTP was developed by leading experts in aviation safety, training, and competency assessment.
The program is a must for anyone who flies over water and meets or exceeds the industry standard requirements for ditching theory.
As part of a blending learning program, you will be required to demonstrate your ability to prepare for a ditching, egress from a capsized helicopter underwater egress simulator using breath-hold and an emergency breathing system, and surface survival techniques at a recognized practical training provider after completing this online program.
