New Dunker!

The worst scenario for an air crew is undoubtedly a ditching specially on helicopters. A helicopter is normally heavier on the top and lighter on the bottom so the probability of capsizing is very almost 100% in order to train that kind of situation Helicopter Operators or training facilities have developed training programs to prepare crews and passengers that fly over the ocean to face that situation and the Portuguese Navy is no exception. By taking the benefit of the intern know how, technical knowledge and man power the PoNavy developed a new Dunker apparatus built as an academic final examination to the new formed naval machinery technicians.

Here is a video of some tests.
