Intended for transporting helicopter passengers over water, the Mustang Helicopter Passenger Transport Suit System is designed to provide flotation in case of accidental immersion in water and minimize the risk of drowning. The system is also designed to reduce thermal shock upon entry into cold water and delay the onset of hypothermia. This suit utilizes specific features that minimize the potential for snagging during helicopter egress and life raft boarding.
The Helicopter Passenger Transport Suit System consists of the MS2000 v03 Flight Commander Immersion Suit and a MD1128 v03 Life preserver, which are meant to be worn together.
This suit is not adversely affected by sea water, perspiration or petroleum products and is resistant to flames, rot, corrosion and sunlight.
The outer shell is constructed of 210-denier polyurethane coated nylon fabric, which is resistant to puncture, tearing and abrasion. All seams are sewn and taped inside using hot air sealing tape to maintain water tightness. The high visibility shell provides waterproof coverage from the feet to neck and wrists.
Constructed using three layers of material, the interlining and inner lining are gold colored 100% nylon. These two fabrics enclose the 5.0 mm PVC foam flotation material. The Thermal Liner is designed to be removable, and is equipped with plastic fix-locks to fasten it into the legs of the suit, and wrists and fabric loops at the neck. The two zippers located along the front entry form the primary attachment to the shell.
