Aviation Accident Prevention Bulletin - Authorized Flight Helmet Parts

Posted 10 years 334 days ago ago by Admin

US Dept. of Interior / US Forest Service

Interagency Aviation Accident Prevention Bulletin

Subject: Authorized Flight Helmet Parts
Area of Concern: Aircrew Safety – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Date: April 30, 2013

Discussion: Some flight helmets may contain outdated components that don’t afford the same level of protection as updated components. Additionally, some manufactures are misrepresenting their products by stating that they meet military specifications (milspec) or that they’re “exactly the same” as milspec
helmets and related components. Wearing helmets that don’t meet the agency requirements is not only against DOI and USFS policy, it’s downright dangerous!
