Warsash Maritime Academy’s Mini Oil Tankers Helps Train Pilots

Posted by : admin

The Warsash Maritime Academy in the United Kingdom has a program where pilots drive around miniature oil tankers in a pond.  Apparently the mini oil tankers are difficult to drive around and emergency situations are replicated.  Personally if you stuck me in one of these, I’d be too tempted to play a game of bumper boats.  Some of the emergency situations include a failing engine.  These miniature versions of a large tanker runs about $245,000 each.  Given the recent pirate attacks, I am wondering how the Academy will be able to replicates a similar emergency situation using these tiny tankers.
