About us


Your safety partner

LITE FLITE was originally founded as a one-man company in 1968. Our innovative product lineup has evolved throughout the years from parachutes and maritime products into safety related items for helicopters and fixed wing aircrafts. After the Estonia ferry disaster in 1994 in the Baltic Sea, we have delivered safety and rescue equipment to numerous governments in Europe.
