Episode 22: Hoist Part 1

With Rob Munday

Rob Munday from Blackcomb Helicopters & SR3 Rescue Concepts joins Wayne and Jon to discuss hoist techniques. Riding the hoist makes great social media posts, but behind the cool pictures is a skill that must be continuously honed and refined. The Army Hoist SOP is a relatively progressive document, but too many units ignore the important information in the SOP because of an ill-informed “belief there is greater risk involved.” Setting aside certain hoist techniques as only suitable for combat is a surefire way to guarantee that we don’t have the right skills when they’re needed in the next fight. If your unit is only training static hoists at IGE altitudes, this episode is for you. Wayne and Jon give great perspectives coming from the Navy and Coast Guard, and Rob’s expertise is definitely worth a listen.
