The CPR is the commercial version of the raft designed for and adopted by the U.S. Coast Guard for their Helicopter Operations. This professional grade life raft is now availble for general aviation. Catering to both the fixed and rotary wing aircraft, the CPR is TSO-C70a Type II approved.
Boarding a life raft can feel daunting. The CPR makes it as easy as possible with four (4) boarding stations. The CPR comes standard with four (4) wide, stiffened rung ladders that make it easy for someone to climb over a single tube.
In the event that people are getting into the raft from the water, whether the canopy is furled or the arch tubes are up, you can get multiple people into the raft, fast. Even when wearing an inflated life jacket.
The SWITLIK signature convertible canopy feature also allows passengers from any generation to quickly get off your aircraft and safely into the raft. Multiple entry points reduce the need for anyone to get in the water.
Unlike any other raft on the market, the CPR comes standard with a 5 year service interval*. This extended service interval helps to reduce the overall cost of life raft ownership.
SWITLIK accomplished this in a responsible manner through the combined use of our patented and military proven hermetically sealed packaging system and compressed air inflation. This better protects the raft’s materials and provides excellent cold weather inflation performance versus traditional CO2 inflation systems.
*5 Year service refers to raft only. Survival equipment with shorter shelf life accessible separately from raft.
With SWITLIK’s air charge inflation system, there is now a visible “go/no go” pressure gauge that lets you know your raft is ready to deploy. Time sensitive survival equipment is packed in an external pocket allowing for updating without the cost of servicing the actual life raft.
Kit available for Part 91 operations.
