RFD Australia supplies an extensive range of Pilot Flight Equipment for rotary wing, fixed wing and fast jets.
Joint Strike Fighter Pilot Equipment
This suite of garments has been specifically selected for their JSF aircraft to fully optimize pilot comfort and performance. The final standard Pilot Fighter Equipment developed by RFD Beaufort will provide a fully integrated modular clothing ensemble intended to protect the pilots in all known flying and ground environmental conditions.
A fully integrated clothing system offers major benefits in terms of comfort and mobility with each garment layer being specifically designed to interface with its immediate boundary. This takes into account wearer and clothing allowances ensuring full freedom of movement even with the more cumbersome clothing schedules. In regards to routing of the cooling garment supply hoses, each garment has a breakout facility which lines up with other garments to ensure clean passage through the clothing system.
