Inflatable Life Preserver for use with Flight Commander II Helicopter Transportation Suit
$837.10 Retail $1,396.51
MD1128 02 - Mustang's inflatable life preserver combines with a one piece immersion suit Flight Commander II MS2000 02 to create the Mustang Survival Helicopter Transportation Suit System, designed to provide flotation in case of accidental immersion in water and minimize the risk of drowning. The system also reduces thermal shock upon entry into cold water and delays the onset of hyperthermia. These components make up the Mustang Helicopter Suit System (MHSS-2), which has been issued a Type Certificate by Transport Canada and is an approved helicopter passenger transport suit system.
The inflated life preserver is a torso ring fitted around the vest, positioned below the arms, front lower chest and around the upper back. It is designed to be used only while attached to the Flight Commander Helicopter Passenger Transportation Suit MS2000 02, and should never be used alone. When inflated, the cell supports the head and keeps the upper torso out of the water enhancing protection against hypothermia, and lessens the negative effect on core temperature. The life preserver is inflated by using two separately operated carbon dioxide gas auto-inflation systems.
Spray Hood A removable spray hood has been added to the life preserver. The spray hood features retro-reflective tape, a large window, and has been tested to meet the CO² requirements of CAN/CGSB 65.16-2005. The spray hood is stowed on the back of the life preserver and can be easily deployed by the user.
