Gunner belts & landyards
Lite Flite produces gunner belts, a.k.a. monkey belts or body positioning straps, and all sorts and lengths of lanyards for securing the crew during open door missions.
Gunner belts are used by the helicopter winch man to keep him safe inside the helicopter during search and rescue operations.
Lite Flite gunner belts come in multiple configurations, all built from the same basic construction; A wide, reinforced lumbar support that can be adjusted in the waistline from 60 to 150 cm. For added security, the adjustable front piece of the belt can be equipped with dual click lock buckles.
Fixed or removable
Our gunner belts are equipped with either a fixed lanyard or a tang/d-ring combination for attaching a removable lanyard.
The lanyard is equipped with a length adjuster that does not loosen due to vibrations and wind blast.
As an extra feature, customers can purchase our lanyard connector, which is short strap with a hook or karabiner that can be clipped on to the middle A-ring of the QRB suspension in one end, and a click long tang for attaching our click lock lanyards in the other. By using this little device and a hoist harness equipped with a similar tang, the winch man can be secured in the helicopter, without the need for a separate gunner- or monkey belt.
Like the rest of our helicopter equipment, Lite Flite’s gunner belts and lanyards are made of corrosion treated stainless steel and anodized aluminum, as they are sea water resistant and need minimal daily maintenance.
Lite Flite hoist harnesses are type tested and -approved iaw European Council Regulation 2016/425 and associated European Norms EN813, EN1497, EN358 etc. The EC Regulation has replaced the old, so-called Fall Protection Directive 89/686.
Lite Flite hoist harnesses are considered “Simple PCDS” iaw EASA Certification Memo CM-CS-005, as included in the latest amendment of CS-27 and CS-29.
