Bristow Academy Inc. announces joint venture agreement with Rotorworld Institute LLC

Titusville, FL – Bristow Academy Inc., a division of Bristow Group Inc. (NYSE:BRS), today announced a joint venture agreement with Rotorworld Institute LLC to offer Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET). The first eight-hour course is planned for October 7, 2011, and includes two hours of classroom and six hours of practical instruction. 

Demand for HUET training has increased in recent years as oil and gas companies move into deeper offshore waters and rely more on helicopter transportation to rigs and platforms. The joint venture agreement with Rotorworld Institute LLC brings together Rotorworld’s expertise in the highly specialized HUET training and Bristow Academy’s track record of successful experience-based programs developed by leading aviation educators and safety experts for the offshore oil and gas industry.

The HUET course trains pilots, crew and passengers who may be transported offshore in rotor and fixed aircraft, for emergency exit. But it also provides a basic introduction into water survival following underwater aircraft escape for anybody who flies in aircraft over or near water or even flooded rivers.  The practical session of this course is conducted in a controlled pool environment and attendees will experience swim and tread water instruction, training and practical use of emergency underwater breathing equipment and a number of fully supervised immersed “runs” in the single seat underwater egress simulator unit. Although initial courses will be provided in Florida, the unit is fully mobile and this training can be provided at any customer location.
