RFD Beaufort Inc is pleased to announce we will supply representatives from the Navy, Air Force, Marines and student pilots from allied countries with pilot flight equipment as part of the new innovative F-35 flight training program at Eglin Air Force Base in the US. Joint Strike Fighter instructor pilots were fitted for their flight equipment specifically tailored for the new F-35 Lightning II Fighter in the Nomad Hall during a press conference held at the base.
Manufactured at RFD Beaufort Inc in Ohio, the flight equipment has been uniquely designed based on F-35 specifications and trial runs. This equipment includes tailored arm restraint lines for safer ejections and two different anti-g suits, including a 5 bladder and a full coverage anti-g suit that would prevent pilots from suffering g-induced loss of consciousness.
The program is expecting their first flight simulators to be online by the summer and is expecting the arrival of the first F-35 later this year.
