Hi Andy,

It would probably be worth talking to Paul Glatzel, he has done the RNLI Atlantic Helmsmanís course which had some helicopter exercises in it. You can read the article at http://www.powerboat-training.co.uk/...20helmsman.htm - contact details are there too.

Also, there is a helicopter article and safety card in PBO this month (December issue, pg80->).

Daniel

Hi

Hope the following are of help:

Close-ups of Victor Alpha (reserve Portland Helo)

http://www.powerboat-training-uk.co....0advanced2.htm

(Have higher res shots if required)

Some helo shots from the RNLI Atlantic Training Course

www.powerboat-training.co.uk/RNLI%20Photos.htm

(Likewise may be able to get you higher res stuff in time)

Feel free to use any of these photos.

Also if you email (not PM) me your email address Iíll send you the RNLI Helo Proceedures booklet which outlines the RNLI methods for helo rescue and is rather useful. (This is freely available on the web so is not pinched!)

Good luck

Paul

PS: Daniel - just noted your post, thanks!!
