Starting with safety above the water
From offshore operations to private tours, a lot of flying happens over water. Even in the peak of summer, the average water temperature is only around 62 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, and every degree lower, your chance of surviving hypothermia dramatically decreases.
Not only that, in 2014 the FAA updated the equipment and operation standards for helicopters requiring all passengers and crew to wear a FAA approved life vest. Of course, during normal operations, the likelihood of you being exposed to freezing water is low but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. From anti-exposure suits to constant wear life jackets, SWITLIK is designed to protect you from the water.
