Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System – CA-EBS Learning Outcomes:

  1. Donning of an aviation lifejacket, compressed air emergency breathing system (CA-EBS)  equipment and conducting integrity checks of the CA-EBS equipment, including buddy checks
  2. Deploying (left and right hand) and breathing from CA-EBS equipment at atmospheric pressure in dry conditions
  3. Following instruction from the crew, location of CA-EBS equipment and evacuation from a helicopter using a nominated exit, following a controlled emergency descent to a dry landing (conducted inhelicopter simulator at poolside on dry land)
  4. Actions to be taken in preparing for an in-water ditching including location of exit, deploying and breathing from CA-EBS equipment at atmospheric pressure in dry conditions (conducted in helicopter simulator at poolside on dry land)
  5. Deploying CA-EBS (above the water surface) and breathing from the CA-EBS in a pool, face down in shallow water (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
  6. Deploying CA-EBS (below the water surface, face down in a pool in shallow water) and clearing the
    mouthpiece by exhaling under the water surface (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the
    chest)
  7. Deploying CA-EBS (below the water surface, face down in a pool in shallow water, using opposite
    hand to previous exercise) and clearing with purge button under the water surface (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
  8. Deploying CA-EBS (above water surface), in a pool and breathing from CA-EBS underwater in a
    vertical position (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)

  4. Water entry (stepping off poolside, maximum height 1 meter) and the precautions to be taken when entering the water.
  5. Individual and group sea survival techniques, to include: swimming, getting into Heat Escape Lessening Position (HELP), wave-slap protection, towing, chain, huddle and circle
