Aviation flight suit comes with hood. The MAC10 is a close fitting, anti-exposure suit for pilots and passengers flying over marine environments.
The MAC10 is a unique product with a proud tradition of nearly 20 years service and performance. The MAC10 is a constant wear, hypothermia protective garment designed specifically for use by pilots and passengers flying over water in light aircraft, float planes, helicopters, long range patrol aircraft and even high performance jets. This unique product combines protection against all of the following hazards: fire and its radiant heat, cold exposure, cold water immersion and drowning. As a result, the MAC10 replaces multiple garment layers normally worn by aircrew for protection from individual operational hazards.
The MAC10 is a close fitting, tailored garment engineered for maximum mobility during aircraft operations. Zippered ankle gussets assist in donning and doffing. A range of pockets is provided to store personal items: notepads, pens and survival equipment including survival knife. An insulated thermal protective hood, stored in the right leg pocket, minimizes heat loss and provides good fire protection for the head.
Patented Tug-Tite® closures at the wrist and ankles enhance the in-water hypothermia protective performance by minimizing cold water flushing. Even after being significantly marred by fire or puncture, the suit still offers very good flotation and hypothermia protection. This fault tolerance is in stark contrast to the vulnerability of aviation dry suits to relatively minor degrees of damage.
The durable anti-static, flame resistant Nomex® aramid fabric provides external protection for the inherently buoyant, flame resistant, thermally protective integral wet suit. An inner layer of Nomex® aramid fabric provides further flame resistant protection and comfort, and completes the MAC10's three layers of protection. Rugged leather panels are integrated into high wear areas of the knees and seat for increased resistance to abrasion, petroleum, fuel oils and soiling.
The MAC10 is compatible with any life jacket, such as Mustang Survival's twin chambered constant wear MD1127 inflatable life jacket. The MAC10 can be customized for high performance aircraft to provide pass through's for Anti-G garments worn beneath the suit.
