PENSACOLA, Fla. (July 21, 2022) A Sailor assigned to Naval Aviation Schools Command in Pensacola, Florida, exits the water after a training evolution in the Pensacola Bay during Aviation Rescue Swimmer School, July 21, 2022. The training is physically demanding and involves instruction on topics such as aircrew duties and assignments, survival, first aid and water rescue procedures. With these skills, enlisted aviation personnel will eventually be assigned to fleet squadrons as naval aircrewmen rescue swimmers.
