ALPHA 900 Series – Rotary Wing

ALPHA 900 Series – Rotary 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 with rigid visor cover with NVG mount and optional maxillofacial shield for full facial protection. ANR compatible for high cockpit noise environments.

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.
