Pilots prepare for all situations including emergencies that may lead to making an off-airport landing. Once safely on the ground, pilots and passengers need to have the right tools to help them not only survive, but to aid Search and Rescue in locating and extracting them from dangerous environments.
Lightspeed has been honored to shed light on the topic of survival preparedness following an off-airport landing. Through these very important conversations, we have learned a great deal, especially about what it takes to be prepared beforehand and what basic survival tools make the difference in an emergency landing scenario. We have also heard gratitude from many pilots about putting this issue in the spotlight, motivating them to become more prepared. This led us to create a new series of products that are purpose-built for you and your passengers in the event you find yourself in an “unplanned” off- airport landing.
Encompassing the basic needs for shelter, fire, water, first aid, and rescue, the Lightspeed Survival Gear Bag, Survival Gear Kit, and Survival Checklist Deck provide pilots with the tools they need to ensure their safety and rescue in emergency situations.
