Daz Posted February 4, 2009 Report Share Posted February 4, 2009 Hi all... A little background... I'm a brand new "100-hour wonder" (just finished my CPL-H in January at Bighorn/Mountain View helicopters), and I'm also a long-time ski patroller at Panorama Mountain Village out by Invermere, BC. Every season, we train our patrollers in on-hill med-evac procedures. RK Heli-Ski is right here on the resort, so it's usually Bruce from Elbow River with his 212 that we train with. About once every year or two we have an injury serious enough to warrant a heli-evac. Occasionally, we utilize their help in searching for missing skiers, which can involve us ski patrollers hot-loading and hover-exiting. Anyways, for years, we've always been doing the same pre-briefing and orientation - which has always worked well. This year, I'm going to lead the orientation; as I'm an old ski patroller and a new pilot, it's something I wanna do. Being a keener and all , I'm looking for any advice, tips, and anecdotes from any of you that have done med-evacs or search-and-rescues - anything to help update and advance our training. What do you like to see from the "rescuers"? What DON"T you like to see? Tell me your stories! Cheers, Darren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
