Lightweight, crash-worthy helicopter seat built of modern materials. The seat is built around a suspended mechanism, an energy-absorbing system, and SPIRAL technology. As a result, the systems provide the benefits of two approaches:
The cables-based suspended system isolates the occupant from vibration and reduces shock waves conveyed to the body.
The energy-absorbing device reduces the remaining accelerations delivered to the passengers.
The overall weight of the seat is 14 Lb (6.5 kg), which is unrivaled in the industry.
