“We have been using Lite Flite for a good number of years for role equipment fitted to our aircraft. Lite Flite have always been helpful, responsive and willing to go that extra mile to ensure our requirements are always met, whilst maintaining the high quality of their products.

I would have no problem recommending Lite Flite looking for someone to supply role equipment to meet all their needs”

“As the UKSAR Survival Equipment Coordinator it is a pleasure to work with Lite Flite products and to deal with the company on a regular basis. As responsible for training individuals on the maintenance and care of the QRB, Crewman’s Harness and a number of other SAR items and following the Component Maintenance Manuals couldn’t be easier. These items are fantastic to work with and the build quality is second to none.”

Graham Alecock-Smith, UK SAR Survival Equipment Coordinator/SME, Bristow Search & Rescue

“Cobham Helicopter Academy offers bespoke military and civilian specialist helicopter training, to customers world-wide, across a variety of roles. Since its inception three years ago, we have exclusively used Lite Flite equipment for all types of crew training.  Lite Flite equipment is class leading.  It is robust, easy to service and comfortable to wear, even for the longer periods often required during instructional sorties, it is also simple to size and fit, something very important for basic students.  The winching harness and QRB are class leading.  Easy to fit, comfortable to wear and very robust.  The QRB is simple to service even after immersion in water and we often use it on multiple back-to-back sorties.

Customer service is another bonus.  Lite Flite have always been keen to work with us to develop and modify equipment to the specifications we need.  They have also provided equipment at short notice.  Thomas has always been a pleasure to deal with.”

Andrew Catterall, Senior Rearcrew Instructor, Cobham Aviation Services UK

“Bristow SAR has been using Lite Flite products for many years.  The level of service, high quality products and simplicity of use, make Lite Flite a go to partner for winching equipment for Bristow SAR.”
