Abstract
Trials were conducted to evaluate the survival gear carried by the CC130 Hercules during operations in the arctic. This included all of the contents of the current Global survival kit and, separately, AETE's proposed supplementary kit. Cold Lake Trials took place 12-16 Feb 1993 at Burnt Lake Alberta, a satellite position from CFB Cold Lake. Two participants simulated 24 hours of survival after a crash using the Global kit. This was followed by three participants using the proposed Supplementary contents. Specific changes to many of the survival items are suggested, and some futher investigation is required. The CC130 kit is, at a minimum, sufficient for several days survival under winter conditions for a small group of people.
