My Number One Selling Winslow Life Raft

The Winslow Ultra-Light Offshore Life Raft


Winslow Liferafts have been rated #1 in every test conducted by The Aviation Consumer, a critically acclaimed publication, since 1994 when they conducted the first ever exhaustive testing and review of aviation life rafts.  “The Winslow Liferaft is our first choice… by a large margin.”

Life Raft Survival Training / Water Survival 101

Join me at one of my over-water survival classes either here in Mobile Alabama, or at an area near you. Great for Safety Fly-Ins, Seminars, Sun & Fun / Oshkosh group gatherings, Flying Clubs, or Yacht Clubs.

I train with Winslow, Revere, and Switlik Life Rafts.

"The class was an eye opener.  I had not previously appreciated many of the challenges involved in deploying a raft after ditching, boarding a raft from the water, being found by searchers and surviving a rescue.  Experiencing first-hand getting into the raft (even if only in a pool), and hearing Randy share his very practical suggestions for how to increase the chances of survival, made the investment worthwhile.  My friends and I obtained a measure of confidence that I believe will prove invaluable should we ever need to put those skills and knowledge to use.  Highly recommended!"

Thank you for bringing a new touch to the meaning of aviation survival. It is amazing that in the period of time that you demonstrated the survival skills and inflated the life-raft, you changed for each of us, the understanding and the perspective of survival at sea following the ditching of a private plane.

I have no doubt that somewhere down the road…one of our students that participated in Randy’s training will put some or all of it to use. His training has caused me personally to re-evaluate my emergency procedures and to take some key steps to ensure the safety of myself and my loved ones. I cannot recommend Randy’s training highly enough. This training can/will save your life. Thank You Randy!
