ALPHA 900 Series – Fixed Wing
The ALPHA 900 Series helmet is lighter in weight than prior models, using an epoxy resin aramid and a carbon fibre shell, while providing necessary impact and penetration resistance. The lighter weight, plus a streamlined design, featuring a ratcheting nape strap retention system and tensioning ear shells, provides added stability and comfort for improved aircrew performance, particularly when flying with NVGs or other helmet mounted systems.
Configured for safe ejection up to 625 KEAS with locking dual-visor system and oxygen mask compatibility. Based on the Alpha Mk10 Fixed Wing Helmet system flown by the U.K MoD.
The Gentex ALPHA 900 is the successor to the 200 (rotary & non-ejection seat fixed wing), 300 (fast-jet), and 800 (SAR) ALPHA helmets. ALPHA helmets are used by countless civilian operators and over 65 air forces and around the globe.
