RAF appoints Institute for defensive training

IAM Fleet Training has won a contract to teach defensive driving techniques to the Royal Air Force Mountain Rescue Service. The IAM will focus on on-road training, giving the RAF crews the skills to drive on motorways, dual carriageways, in urban areas and on country roads, where the size and weight of their vehicles could potentially cause difficulties.

The RAF has undertaken the defensive driving programme to improve the effectiveness of its high-profile rescue teams - accidents on the way to an emergency would have a critical impact on the teams' response times. Initially five teams of two will be trained, in Staffordshire, Kinloss and Leuchars in Scotland, Leeming in Yorkshire, and St Athen in South Wales.
