This week I am helping out with our National Pilots Ground School in New Orleans. One of the trainings that was offered this week was Water Ditching, which involves escaping an aircraft after a water landing(see ditching). I participated in this training a few years back, it’s a blast and I wish I had been able to get in the “dunker” for this session but unfortunately we were short of hands so I was one of the people tipping the “dunker” into the water. You gotta love the fact we were doing this on the top of a 9 story hotel that’s 100 years old.
