The Training Liferaft

"Hewey"  training  Liferafts  are   specifically  designed  for   training organisations that require a survival training raft that really lasts and will take the rigors of continuous use of survival training courses in the oil, gas, rig and aviation industry.

"Hewey"  training rafts are similar in appearance to a traditional reversible aviation life raft. Each raft can be customized to suit any Liferaft used in existing training courses.
