The team were very lucky to visit the helicopter base at Portland to have a training input by the crew of 106.
We work closely with the helicopter and it was nice to speak to the crew in a quiet and safe environment rather than the noise and difficult working situation we often find ourselves in.
We got some instruction by Steve and Buck on loading and the equipment carried on the aircraft which is a serious medical asset to the local area.
Roger kindly showed us the lifting capability of the winch and actually should you need to be rescued, how uncomfortable the rescue strop may be.
Our thanks to CHC, especially the crew for giving up a valued few hours.
