RAAF and TRMRG Helicopter Training Exercise
The RAAF Pearce came today helicopter exercise. The Two Rocks Marine Rescue Group provides assistance with a boat a) to standby in case a RAAF member gets into trouble in the water and b) the helicopter pilot will hover over the boat and the a man is winched down onto the deck. Over two days we did four hours of exercises. On the first day I was a crew and on the second I was helmsman on the boat. This is part of my training to become a skipper. Here are some photos taken on the exercises.
