Meteksan to deliver helicopter rescue training system for Turkey
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.
According to Meteksan Defence, the delivery of HUET is the result of a 2022 contract from the Turkish Defence Industry Agency.
