Survival Systems is pleased to provide you with this illustrative guide that provides an overview of our highly reliable, cost effective, and performance oriented underwater escape trainer -the Modular Egress Training Simulator (METSTM) -an all encompassing solution to the challenge of effectively training aircrew. Given that one (1) ditching occurs every 100,000 hours, aircrew flying over water could one day be faced with a life-threatening situation of having to egress from a ditched and / or submerged helicopter.

The METS™ is a proven, state-of-the-art training system that has been used to provide emergency egress training to commercial and military personnel around the world for more than 20 years.

The METS™ provides a high degree of realism and flexibility through the use of moveable and interchangeable interior and exterior panels, bulkheads, seats, emergency egress exits, and exit release mechanisms. These modular components closely simulate the specific characteristics of the most common types of helicopters used by flight crews. The flexibility and ability to recreate realistic emergency conditions increases a trainee's likelihood of surviving a ditching and also enables the METS™ owner to attract a broader client base.

At Survival Systems, we have a team of highly qualified training personnel consisting of retired helicopter pilots and crews, world-renowned aerospace human factor specialists, and experienced engineers, technicians, and training instructors. Our training programs incorporate a range of possible crash scenarios including inverted underwater egress. These graduated training techniques are designed so that even trainees who do not have strong swimming skills can successfully complete our comprehensive training program.


One measure of our success is indicated by the fact that over the past 20 years, it is estimated that between 300,000 - 500,000 aircrew, passengers, offshore workers, paramedics and special operations personnel have been safely trained in METS™ devices, totaling more than 2,000,000 METS™ training sequences.

Our greatest rewardl howeverl has been provided by the numerous helicopter crews and passengers who have actually ditched, and who directly attribute their successful escape from a sinking aircraft to the training received from Survival Systems' training and our METS™.

Although we are a business operation, the preservation of life forms the very foundation of our existence as a company, and we are committed to our clients and to a long-term transfer of technology.  We therefore urge you to carefully consider our METS™ Total Systems Approach to training, the METS™ low maintenance costs, our years of training expertise, and superior after-sales support. We believe all these value-added benefits will help your organization fulfill all its emergency egress training requirements.
