Two Rocks Sea Rescue Helicopter Exercise

Today was really an exciting day as I was a trainee crew member on Sea Guardian 2. We took part in a helicopter training exercise with the RAAF. The exercise coordinated training of RAAF helicopter pilots and the TRVSRG. A RAAF crew member was winched from Sea Guardian 2 to the helicopter. The RAAF then performed various exercises simulating rescuing persons from the ocean. We later performed a ‘man overboard’ exercise rescuing the RAAF crew member from the water and getting him on board Sea Guardian 2. These coordinating training exercises are so beneficial to both organisations. A previous exercise was also held last week.
