Helicopter Underwater Escape Training Simulator
LifeFlight’s underwater escape training simulators have been specifically designed and certified for instructing how to escape from a submerged aircraft.
The simulator can carry up to six students, two seated in the front cockpit and up to four in the rear cabin. The front doors are hinged with jettison facility, while the rear doors are sliding. Multiple exit points are provided including push out windows on several simulators to give relevant practice in a range of exit situations.
Practical skill development includes:
Underwater escape from an aircraft simulator
Situational Personal Response Management
Cockpit and cabin orientation and exit location
Lifejacket and life raft deployment
Use of life-saving appliances
Enrolling for courses at the LifeFlight Training Academy means you will undertake world-class, state-of-the-art training in Brisbane, Queensland’s capital, in a location right next to Brisbane Airport. Your team can fly in, fly out with plenty of local accommodation and a minimal cost of getting around, or, you can take your time to explore Australia’s “New World City”.
Apart from the many attractions within the relaxed, sunny river city of Brisbane, you’ll be 1-2 hours from some of the most beautiful beaches in the Southern Hemisphere. What is Brisbane famous for? Subtropical warmth, relaxation and an easy, friendly pace – within Australia we’re known as the “holiday city”!
I really wanted to thank you and your amazing team for all your support and guidance through the HUET course today. I appreciate everything you have done for me over the past few weeks, and today in particular. It has definitely been a memorable experience.

Very well organised and presented course by LifeFlight. Phil Head and Jerome Guitton were brilliant instructors and were experts in their field. Thank you Phil for all the extra work and time you put in to assist me in completing my ATPL. LifeFlight Training Academy has friendly, helpful and dedicated people and that is what makes the difference between a good and excellent training organisation.
