Chopper Challenge




The Cornerstone Foundation is offering an exclusive opportunity top 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 a 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.

We are looking for teams of four to take part, with a minimum sponsorship amount of £600 and non-refundable registration fee of £140 per team. Additionally, a limited number of individual spaces may be available on request.

All funds raised will enable people living with disabilities and other support needs to lead a valued life, the life they choose.

Once your team's places on the chopper have been confirmed, we will be in touch to give you advice on how to kick-start your fundraising.
