Armoured Aircrew Life Preserver

The Armoured Aircrew Life Preserver has optional integrated armour protection and is designed to the highest UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) specifications.

The Armoured Aircrew Life Preserver offers protection for aircrew deployed in hostile environments, without compromising comfort, movement or survival equipment storage, making it the ultimate defence under fire.
Fully integrated and sanctioned for use on attack helicopters including Chinook, Apache, Lynx and Puma , the Armoured Aircrew Life Preserver has been successfully certified and approved by over twenty international air forces. It is currently undergoing several further international trials.


Meeting the needs of both front crew (MK61, MK65) and rear crew (MK60) within non-fast-jet fixed and rotary wing aircraft, Survitec’s Armoured Aircrew Life Preserver incorporates unique design and advanced technology. A fully integrated product, it couples marine survival flotation with complete armoured torso protection and is intended for use by international defence organisations and national MODs.
