Helicopter helmets are a critically important piece of equipment and plays an essential role for every pilot and crew. The MSA Gallet helicopter helmets meet or exceed the highest standards in the industry. We sell only authentic MSA Gallet helmets. At Merit Apparel, our top priority is safety but we also know that fit, comfort, function and reliability are major contributors in performing at top levels and getting your job done.
We also understand that your helicopter helmet is a key element in maintaining consistent quality communication links with those on-board and on the ground. Your helmet is designed for passive noise reduction in addition to radio and intercom connections with your team. A low quality or improperly fit helmet and poorly designed communication system can compromise your ability to work seamlessly with your crew. We work hard to make sure these are non-issues for every customer we serve.
Merit Apparel also provides NOMEX flight gloves that are heat and flash resistant with soft sheep hide palm inserts sewn with NOMEX thread.
Our MSA Gallet Flight Helmets are manufactured for use on fixed and rotor wing aircraft. They can be custom configured for pilots and crew members. Primary features of our flight helmets include:
- Lightweight & comfortable
- Customized size for perfect fit
- Engineered for the most comfortable center of gravity
- Impact protection
- Best peripheral vision available
- NVG compatible with inner visor down for bird strike protection
- Integrated customizable communication systems
- Sunlight and wind blast protection
- Passive noise reduction
We offer a wide variety of options to customize your helmet to your aircraft, your specialty and your specific job on the aircraft.
Helicopter Medical Evacuation crews have had a longstanding problem of being unable to hear their patients while wearing their (ANR) helmets. A solution has been developed and introduced to the market and Merit Apparel has this revolutionary communication system.
Called the “Talk Through” system, it can be installed on most ANR helmets. How does it work? Small microphones are installed on the exterior of the helmet (see image). The microphones allow the air medic nurse wearing the helmet to hear the patient without removing the helmet. There is no tether to the aircraft so the device will work onboard or outside the aircraft. The new device will enable the onboard medical attendants to provide a new level of patient care on or off the aircraft. Other applications for this system would include industrial and rescue helicopter operations.
Our flight gloves are worn by U.S. and European military pilots and crew. They are designed to provide high functionality and comfort. Our flight gloves have the following features:
- Made of 100% DuPont NOMEX fabric
- Flash & heat resistant
- Soft sheep hide palm
- Sewn with non-melting NOMEX thread
- Comfortable fit
- Colors – sage green, tan, black, navy
