    Gearing up for WOFT

    Most of the people posting on here are Canadian, so you might not get much feedback on US Army programs.

    Personal Flight Kit

    Haven't really used it yet. Just got the hammock a few weeks ago. I figure I will just use a couple loops of paracrod instead of lugging around tree straps. It will get used for regular camping as well, and in that case I will lug around tree straps if I am car camping. Best part is that the hammock fits between the grab handles on the ceiling of a 212/412/205. No more lying on the ground for me while waiting for customers.

    Personal Flight Kit

    I recently assembled my survival/unexpected overnight kit for the helicopter. I'm flying a Bell 212 or 412, so I have lots of storage room to put it. If I was flying a Jetbox, I would probably build it a lot lighter and smaller. The bag itself is a completely waterproof drybag, so there is no worries about anything getting wet. I have a large reusable silica gel canister inside that will keep the moisture level where it needs to be, as well as a bunch of small silica bags (like the one you find in new shoes) scattered through all the individual bags inside. Here is what I have in it: -Survival Kit Contents- __________ Bag (1795g) __________ Outside of Bag (1893g) 1 Lightweight Carabiner (22g) 1 Trauma Kit w/ Tourniquet (443g) 1 Gerber LMF2 knife (523g) 38 Zip Ties (73g) 1 Set Arc'teryx Rain Gear (832g) __________ Medical Pouch (645g) 1 General First Aid Kit 1 Extra Tourniquet 1 Pelican 1010 Case 32 Ibuprofen 400mg 30 Aspirin 81mg 12 Anti-Diarrhea Pills 12 Laxative Pills __________ Main Compartment (2038g) 1 Sleeping Bag (1150g) 1 Folding Shovel (836g) 1 Silica Gel Canister (52g) __________ Yellow Small Pouch (825g) 1 500 Lumen Flashlight w/ Batteries 4 Extra AA Batteries 4 12-Hour Yellow Chem Lights 1 Small Wind-Up Flashlight 3 Bic Lighters 1 Container Waterproof Matches 1 36-Hour Candle 1 Fire Starting Striker 1 Fire Tinder Stick 1 Space Pen 1 Black Sharpie 1 Waterproof Writing Notebook __________ Black Medium Pouch (1075g) 1 Microfiber Bath Towel 1 Dry Bag (12L) 1 Hair Comb 1 Toothbrush 1 Tube Toothpaste 1 Bar Deodorant 1 Stick Lip Balm 1 60ml Hand Sanitizer 1 30ml Liquid Hand Soap 1 Roll Toilet Paper 1 Inflatable Pillow 1 Hammock w/ 2 Carabiners 1 Mora Knife 30' Paracord __________ Red Small Pouch (400g) 1 Pair Socks 1 T-Shirt 1 Pair Underwear __________ Black Small Pouch (337g) 1 SAM Splint 1 Pulse Oximeter 1 Pair Mechanix Gloves __________ Black Small Pouch (901g) 1 Star Map 1 SAS Survival Guide 1 Roll Orange Flag Tape 1 Roll Electrical Tape 1 Gerber Multi-Tool 1 Whistle 1 Signal Mirror 1 Compass 1 Bug Hat __________ Black Small Pouch (467g) 1 6'x8' Tarp 6 Tent Pegs 60' Paracord __________ Black Medium Pouch (2745g) 12 125ml Water Pouches (1.5L) 10 400cal Energy Bars (4000cal) 6 Rehydration Salt Packs 1 Water Filter w/ Accessories __________ Total Weight - 13,132g / 28.927 lb

    Carrying A Rifle?

    Whatever you do, use slugs in your 12ga. Buckshot will just piss the bear off more.

    New Helmet

    I just received my LH250 from Rob at Merit today, and all looks great! One tiny adjustment, and it fits and feels like a dream. It also comes with a maintenance program that give a completely 3D explodeable model of the helmet and all its features and parts. Very cool.

    Looking For Feed Back

    This could be a dumb question, but have you considered the military flying route?

    Looking For Tc A/c Identifiers

    Is this what you are looking for? http://www.tc.gc.ca/civilaviation/general/.../helicopter.htm
  10. TWO SURVIVE HELICOPTER CRASH Sounds like everyone is alive, which is good. From the looks of it, it's Great Lakes Helicopters' C-GQGL. Best wishes to those injured, and I hope everyone makes a full recovery.

    Replacement Gentex Tpl Liner

    I'm actually selling the helmet, but I have misplaced the bubble wrap. I just wanted to get something to fill it in. Nothing fancy.
  12. Anyone have a lead on where I could get a replacement TPL liner for a SPH-4B? I gave Flight Suits a call, but they dont have any in stock, and dont expect to have any for a month or so. Even better would be if anyone had one lying around that they wouldent mind parting with. I dont need the cloth liner, just the bubble wrap part. Thanks

    New Helmet

    I did some quick math, and it's still over $1000 cheaper to buy my helmet from Merit Apparel. I got a LH-250 with hush kit and Zeta liner and it came in at about $1700. It should be here in a week or two.

    New Helmet

    Thanks for the explanation. Im leaning towards a Gallet from Merit now.

    New Helmet

    What were people's problems with ordering from FlightSuits? I ordered some smaller items from them last year with no problems. Is there an issue with shipping helmets to canada (besides having to pay at the border)?
