A variant model of our popular Man Overboard manikin, the Helicopter Winch Manikin was designed in consultation with the experts at Bristow Helicopters UK to provide a solution for training horizontal lifts from the water.

Hoist Training Manikin - Helicopter Simulation Dummy for Winch Training - Helicopter Hoist Training Mannequin

Specialised Manikin Design for Accurate Helicopter Winch Lifting

When rescuing someone who has been in the water for a long time, it is important to use a helicopter to lift them safely. To do this, the helicopter must be raised so that the person is not subjected to the pressure of the water. Bristow Helicopters (UK) have worked with Ruth Lee to make changes to the Man Overboard model so that it can be lifted more accurately in a helicopter winch.

Key Features & Equipment Benefits:

  • Has lighter legs than the standard Man Overboard model, meaning that the legs float more readily when fitting the harness/strops in water.
  • The manikin will sit in a stable “W” position whilst winched to the helicopter.
  • Compatible with standard and Hypothermic Lifting straps.
  • Buckle clips on the inside knees and ankles allows for the option of keeping legs together.
  • The tough nylon mesh carcass allows the water to penetrate quickly, allowing the legs to drop beneath the surface, leaving only the head and shoulders visible, if desired.
  • Dry weight 40Kg (Adult) increases to approximately 65Kg retrieval weight from water.
    Floats horizontally, vertically or at 45 degrees, to simulate a live person or dead body – achieved by redistributing foam pieces within the overalls in a matter of seconds.
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make the manikin highly visible in open water.
  • Strong webbing loop at the back allows easy handling, storage and suspension for drying.
  • The soft feet are designed to allow rapid drainage to prevent too much water in the helicopter.
    Comes complete with overalls and soft feet, which are easily replaced if damaged.
