TSB calls for egress training and shoulder harnesses to improve survivability in floatplane accidents

The TSB is making two recommendations aimed at improving the odds that anyone who survives a floatplane crash will get out alive. "In an emergency, you only have seconds to orient yourself and escape and the right training can make the difference between life and death. Pilots with underwater egress training stand a better chance of helping themselves and their passengers survive," said TSB Chair Wendy Tadros. "Another thing that will help immeasurably is shoulder harnesses. Too many passengers survive a floatplane crash only to drown because they have suffered some kind of head trauma and can't get out of the aircraft."

AOPA Live - Real Pilot Stories - Underwater Escape

For many pilots, the prospect of crashing in water is one of the scarier things in aviation. Vancouver, B.C., native Bryan Webster has been there, done that, and says they’re right to be afraid. In the Air Safety Institute’s latest Real Pilot Story, produced with the generous support of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association’s Flight Safety Foundation and Donner Canadian Foundation, he recounts a wild flight as a passenger in a Cessna 150—one that went from “normal” to “unconscious in an inverted, flooded cockpit” in seconds flat. He also shares some of the extensive knowledge he’s amassed while training more than 5,000 people in water egress techniques. Hear the rest of the story, and find out what should be on your mind before your next overwater flight.

Bryan Webster Honoured with the Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award (2007)

Mr. Bryan Webster of Victoria, B.C., has received the 2007 Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award for his exceptional commitment to underwater egress training for pilots and passengers. The award was presented to Mr. Webster on May 1, at the 19th annual Canadian Aviation Safety Seminar (CASS) in Gatineau, Que.

Mr. Webster has accumulated over 11,000 hr of flying time in 35 different aircraft types over a 25-year commercial pilot career that includes bush flying, air ambulance, corporate flying and single-pilot IFR cargo flights. Being a ditching survivor himself in 1977, as a passenger in a Cessna 150, Mr. Webster was instrumental in not only saving his own life, but also the life of the unconscious pilot. He understood early the dangers associated with such a life-threatening situation because he had experienced first-hand the cold rush of water, the panic of disorientation, and the extreme difficulty of evacuating a dark, inverted and sinking aircraft.

After reading about a series of ditching fatalities across Canada in the mid-1990s, in which many had survived the initial impact, but later drowned, Mr. Webster took it upon himself to start an inexpensive underwater egress training program to help better prepare pilots and passengers on how to survive such a traumatic event. He designed specialized equipment to be effective and portable, and travelled across Canada to reach those unable to attend his training program locally in Victoria.

Emergency underwater egress training has proven to dramatically improve survival rates, and Mr. Webster’s program has been featured in several prominent aviation magazines. With his recent book, Survival Guide to Ditching an Aircraft, and his monthly column in COPA Flight magazine, he has been able to promote and demystify this field with such impact and effectiveness that other companies have followed his lead to provide this essential training to even more people. He is rewarded by countless letters of testimony from grateful aviation enthusiasts, both from the private and commercial worlds, who all confirm that 'Bry the Dunker Guy' has made an outstanding impact on Canadian aviation safety.
