Helicopter Crew Vest
The Titan-XF Life Preserver is a manually inflatable life preserver designed for wear by passengers and crew aboard an aircraft during flight over water. While in flight, the Titan-XF is worn deflated and folded to a compact size to provide maximum comfort and mobility for the wearer.
Helicopter Passenger Vest
This continuous wear, yoke style life vest is ideal for helicopter pilots or anyone flying long distances over open water. The Bravo's compact, lightweight design includes a 2-inch, extra wide, waist strap for comfort and security. Equipped with water-activated light, retro-reflective tape and a whistle.
Helicopter Passenger Vest
This twin cell vest comes in a standard or heavy-duty pouch engineered especially for use in helicopter tour operations. Pouch pack design buckles around the waist for constant wear. The life preserver can easily be pulled out and donned over the head with one quick motion, using a single hand.
Things not to do to your raft:
- Drop or drag on harsh surfaces. The valise or case is designed for light weight not severe abrasion resistance.
- Inflate before you send it in. This may damage the raft or shorten the life. We will send a training unit designed for training.
- Cut the bands on the hard case design. This bands are part of the case design and will snap during inflation.
- Keep away from oils or other chemicals. The fabric of this equipment is not resistant to chemicals and will shorten the life.

About Composite Bottles
Composite cylinders represent an optimum lightweight approach to cylinder design. They were initially built for NASA and have been in commercial aircraft service since 1976.
OVERWRAP- Refers to both the fiber and resin as a unit. Fiberglass and Kevlar are the most commonly used fibers. Fibers are wrapped around the circumference or longitudinally or a combination of both. This makes up a majority of the cylinders strength.
METAL LINER- Refers to the metal portion of the cylinder. Usually made of aluminum. It serves as a gas tight membrane and provides a port for the valve.
NOTE: Transporting, retesting, or filling requires a current copy of the appropriate exemption for that specific cylinder.

Safe Handling Requires a Shunt
A shunt is a non-conductive shielding device used to protect an electro explosive device from accidental electrical ignition. Shunts should be used at all times when not installed on a bottle or the bottles they are installed in are not properly secured.

- Survival ELTs - For Life Rafts
All 4 Safetech locations have a selection of life rafts available for rent. If you need Type I or Type II, 91 or 135 Kits, we have a raft to fit your needs.
Although it may be required, using your own life raft for training purposes is not a good practice. Damage to the valise, hard case shell and equipment in or attached to the raft can delay or increase the recertification process. The raft itself can be damaged or destroyed from abrasion or oils on the floor.
Safetech has training rafts for rent that can be used anywhere you choose for training. Even in the swimming pool for actual water training.
406 MHz ELT Rentals
Don’t be caught short without the required 406 MHz ELT. All 135 operators are required for extended over water operations to have an approved survival type ELT attached to one of the life rafts.
