Chopper Challenge

17th November 2016


Cornerstone is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a look behind the scenes of the oil and gas industry with the unique Chopper Challenge.

In association with leading offshore training company, Falck Safety Services, we are offering you the chance to take the plunge in their world leading helicopter underwater escape training (HUET) simulator.

All passengers will be given classroom training before donning a survival suit and taking their seat on the “helicopter” which will then be dropped into the water and flipped over – simulating a water ditching. Once underwater you will escape by pushing out the windows or door and swimming to the surface.

The HUET simulator is mandatory for all offshore workers and this challenge will give you the chance to see what they go through before heading to the North Sea rigs.

Are you up to the challenge? We are looking for teams of four to take part and with a minimum sponsorship amount of £400 and non-refundable registration fee of £40 per team. However, a limited number of individual spaces may be available on request.

All money raised will be used to support Cornerstone’s Quality of Life Programme, which aims to transform the lives of people with disabilities and other support needs by providing access to essential specialised equipment, services and activities that might otherwise be unavailable.

To confirm your seats on the chopper, call Louise on 01224 256 023 or email

**Post-event drinks reception is kindly sponsored by Fierce Beer.**
