Modular Egress Training Simulator (METS) Trainer

The METS Trainer (also known as the Helo Dunker) is designed to provide a realistic environment in which trainees can practice procedures for evacuation from ditched aircraft. The METS training system is designed to provide hands-on training in underwater egress from multi-place aircraft. The training is general in nature, but the METS can be configured specific to aircraft type. The METS incorporates the use of exterior cutout exit panels as well as escape exit panels that replicate actual helicopter escape exits.
