The comprehensive helicopter underwater training system project completed by Meteksan Defence will allow the Turkish Naval Forces to train for various water-based emergency missions.

Ankara-based Meteksan Defence has delivered its Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) simulator to the Turkish Naval Forces, the company announced on 2 October.

The HUET facility will provide an opportunity to practice escape and rescue from a helicopter crashing into the water and from a plane making a forced landing, SAR with rescue helicopter simulation, parachute landing on water and abandoning and boarding ship.

The comprehensive training system consists of a mock-up aircraft cabin, cranes, ancillary systems and a training pool with a technical room, as well as administrative and social spaces.

Once the cabin is descended into the pool, it can be rotated 180° around its axis.
