Bluedrop USA conducted hoist operations in various environments during the training event. These environments included open water confined areas and static and underway vessels. The event culminated in a simulation of a real-world scenario in heavy seas, wind and night. This scenario tested the crew’s coordination and skill in a safe environment. Additionally, Bluedrop USA trained the H-65 and H-60 standardization instructors to develop the transition course. This course is designed to help Coast Guard hoist operators transition smoothly from H-65 to H-60 aircraft.
