Designed for pilots who experience an off-airport landing
LAKE OSWEGO, OREGON, November 5, 2021
Lightspeed Aviation® today introduced the Aviation Survival Gear Kit, a pilot-designed emergency kit that could save the lives of pilots and their passengers.
Pilots prepare for all scenarios and situations before, during, and after flight. This unfortunately includes emergency situations that could lead to making an “off-airport landing” or crash. But what happens after the aircraft comes to a stop? Once safely on the ground, the need to have the right tools to help pilots and their passengers not only survive but to aid in rescue is never more crucial.
Loaded with components to cover the basics of shelter, fire, water, first aid, and rescue, we have strategically created this survival kit for pilots. Here are the details of what’s included:
Aviation Survival Gear Kit
This lightweight, water-repellent survival gear kit is small enough to fit in a flight bag. This military-style bag is made of a durable canvas and comes with multiple pockets, straps, and Velcro pouches to accommodate all the essential supplies.
- Shelter: 5 yards of all-purpose, pocket-sized Duct tape, 5×7-foot Reflective Blanket which can double as a tarp
- Water and Fire: Storm proof matches, water purifying AquaTabs, and a collapsible plastic cup
- First Aid: Chapstick, sunscreen, Tecnu skin cleanser for poison ivy and oak oils and Cala-Gel anti-itch lotion, bug repellant band, and nitrile gloves
- Rescue: Glow sticks, a signaling mirror, and a paracord bracelet with compass, whistle, and flint striker
This multi-tool shovel attaches to the bag in its own sheath. This shovel has sharp and serrated blade sides, a ruler, wrench and nail puller, a can/bottle opener, and additional cording.
Aviation Survival Checklist Deck
The Aviation Survival Checklist Deck is a reference guide made up of 22 informational 4 x 6 cards with simple-to-follow checklists to help keep you on target until help arrives. Topics include first aid, fire, water, shelter, basic knots, and mental toughness tips!
