The restraint is made of the same industrial-strength webbing as your own seatbelt. It is engineered and manufactured by AmSafe Aviation, the world's foremost manufacturer of airline seat belts.

 Essex SCU (Self-Contained Unit)

The lightweight Essex SCU can make the difference between saving a life and losing one. It provides up to 60 minutes of respiratory and decompression protection while allowing the wearer to see, hear, talk, & move freely to escape a fire emergency on a private aircraft. It’s not just 60 minutes of air. It’s a lifetime.

FAA Approved Technology

Although there is no FAA approved design standard for a passenger smoke hood, the Essex SCU is the only personal smoke hood on the market which uses the same materials, design, manufacturing process, protection factor, and control standards as the FAA approved Essex Crewmember PBE. If the FAA demands the best for it's pilots and cabin crew...shouldn't you for passenger protection?
Note: Corporate Air Parts is a stocking distributor for all Essex Smoke Hoods. Due to shipping restrictions you must call or email to order.

 ACR ResQLink PLB (Personal Locater Beacon)

At 4.6 oz, the ResQLink™ weighs less than a couple of PowerBars®. And topping at just 3.9 inches, it’s smaller than the cell phone in your pocket. Small and mighty, the ResQLink™ is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon designed for anglers, pilots and back country sportsmen.

With three levels of integrated signal technology —GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability — the ResQLink™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues.

PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world’s most remote locations and treacherous conditions. Just ask the 400 or so pilots, boaters and back country explorers who were saved by a PLB during a rigorous test program in Alaska. Based in large part on the test results, the federal government approved use of PLBs in the United States in 2003.

Even in extreme conditions and situations, the ResQLink activates easily. Just deploy the antenna and press the ON button. With its powerful 66 channel GPS, the ResQLink™ guides rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position. And, in the continental U.S., search and rescue personnel are typically alerted of your position in as little as five minutes with a GPS-enabled PLB such as the ResQLink™.

Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the ResQLink™ is functioning and ready for use — with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS functionality.

 The Handbook for Aviation for Aviation Survival Sense. Written for the aviator by Emergency Response International.

The Handbook
for Aviation Survival Sense should be an essential item carried on every flight. It's highly relevant content, compact size and waterproof paper will prove invaluable if you ever find yourself responsible for your personal survival or the survival of others when faced with an unexpected off airport landing. Statistically, the majority of people live through aviation crashes and ditching. However, many die needlessly because the pilot and his or her passengers didn't know what steps to take to help insure everyone's survival. This handbook is like having your own survival specialist with you to sort out what to do and how to do it.

 When you're stranded in hostile elements, a LAND/Shark can save your life!

For use on land, the LAND/Shark provides a waterproof one person emergency shelter large enough to provide full body coverage, even over heavy outerwear. It is tough enough to withstand the rigors of a survival situation, yet light enough to not be a burden to carry. The LAND/Shark is a large fully-enclosed shelter (not just a blanket).
