AVIATION SURVIVAL Carries a full line of Aviation Life Rafts to include, Corporate, Recreation, Airline and Commercial rafts. Name Brands such as Winslow, Eastern Aero Marine "EAM", Switlik, and Revere. Aviation Survival is serious about Aviation and Survival Equipment sold thru us.
Aviation Survival is a high volume distributor because we know Rafts, the Regulations, and the ramifications if we get it wrong. As a Pilot owned company, we can guide you into the correct raft and give you peace of mind. One big difference in rafts that you need to decide is what does your aircraft weigh? The point of decision is 12,500 lbs. Over 12,500 you need to look at TSO's rafts. It does not matter if your flying recreational, it is all about the weight.
Regulations then dictate FAA part 91, 121 or 135. If you have passengers that are paying to get from point A to B, and it is over 25 miles, that is FAA part 135! You then need to also equip your raft with a TSO'd ELT. Sorry, the $300.00 dollar PLB won't cut it.
Remember, 12,500 lbs will dictate the type of raft you need. Under 12,500 but still flying a corporate aircraft, you can use a Type II raft. Recreational flights can use FAA Part 91 rafts, but only if it's just you and family or friends.
