The dunker - not your average pool

06 March 2018

The Royal Navy has just opened their new survival training centre at RNAS Yeovilton.  This world class facility simulates a helicopter incident or accident over water, and is most definitely not your average pool project!

Devin's brief was to make this as realistic as possible and design a facility capable of simulating full climatic conditions with waves, counter current, rain, wind and spray - this pool can have a two metre swell!  This video demonstrates the third stage of the training, rescue by air, where personnel are winched from their life rafts and recovered to safety.
