Dick asked me to elaborate.

I did.
Please keep up.

Incidentally, of course the RN has had more accidents in Seakings.

Do I really have to explain?

Ok, here goes.

1. We had orders of magnitude more of them.
2. We did real proper tricky flying in them including going to war. (have you heard of that? It's the thing other military pilots do. Falklands, Iraq, Afghanistan etc)
Some of it involves not just hovering while not being shot at......

You must also remember that the training is necessarily somewhat more challenging since they have a real role to carry out as well as SAR, which, as you know is just a secondary role...

Incidentally, nice try on the "2 students"

Remind me what job one of those "students" was going to?
