  1. Lightspeed comes with a a 3 yr warranty. Bose has no support if you have problems. Have had lightspeed for a few years now and couldn't fly without it.
  2. Another Tool yes, but maybe better suited for the built up areas of Southern California. The daylight is abundant north of 49 in the summer months and hitting the fire before noon and the heat of the day is probably a better option. Something the forest services have yet to figure out in the 25yrs I’ve been flying. But who am I to argue as it just leads to bigger fires and bigger paychecks.
  3. Flying sky divers one day and the next day it is -40?? 🙄🤪
  4. HGU-84 single bungee visor with Lightspeed ANR = 966 grams.
  5. Yes Glad you like it. I’ve used an HGU for over 15yrs. In the past year I bought a new setup with the Lightspeed and the fatigue has dropped immensely.

Have loved the fit of the helmet out of the box and is pretty quite. Just recently went through all the research as I wanted to replace it as it’s getting to be that time. Ended up going with the same helmet from Gibson Barnes but are having them install the Lightspeed ANR. Unlike the Bose it comes with a 3yr manufacturer warranty and seems to
  9. Sure Steve if you enjoy giving the Government 40% of your paycheck. ;-)
  10. Maybe for full time guys but not for a contractor. This is set in stone either way.
  11. I'm 42 non smoker and spend 90% of my time at the end of a longline. Been in the industry for 20yrs. I have 2 young kids and a wife who depend upon me. I have been searching for years to find something affordable. Finally found an underwriter who was able to give me 1.5 million term insurance till I am 65 for about $150 a month no conditions. Was told the bank mortgage insurance isn't worth the paper its written on as they will find every out they can to not pay. Usually that means some type of pilot error as 99% of the time lawyers can find something we did wrong in an emergency situati
