Application

         

Light aircraft AEROBAG

Five european companies (LaMouette, Helite, Hynov, G’Découvert, Softair) with the help of local and national ultralight federations have worked for the past 2 years in developing an intelligent protection device.
We have created a product that is extremely reliable and effective for the pilot and the passenger. This active system uses the cold gas airbag technology, which Helite has already used for the past decade in the motorcycle and equestrian field. Several patents have been issued for this very innovative product. AEROBAG is innovative for its technology and the way it maintains the head in place to avoid a whiplash. Introducing this kind of airbag in the light aircraft field is the real innovation.

There are two different AEROBAGS:

The AEROBAG BELT integrated in the shoulder straps

The AEROBAG VEST that is worn over any other garment.

THE DISTRIBUTION IS EXCLUSIVELY OPERATED BY LAMOUETTE, OUR DISTRIBUTOR. 

 


ACCIDENT STATISTICS AND TRAUMAS


WEAR AN AEROBAG TO PROTECT FROM :
1. Direct collision with elements from the aircraft such as the control board or the structure of the cabin.
2. Collision with the ground or any exterior element
3. Crashing of the passenger on the pilot for tandem aircrafts

ACCIDENT STATISTICS IN FRANCE (The following data dates from 2007 and was provided by the French Federation for Ultralight Aircarfts.)

20 to 30 deaths per year for a fleet of 12 000 ultra light aircrafts in France:

  • 80% of the accidents are human mistakes (technique, behavior, decision…)
  • 18% are trikes, 67% are 3 axes micro lights, the rest are autogiros and paramotors.
  • 90% of the time, the accident happens when the pilot position itself's for landing and during the landing phase (cases that make the parachute useless)


TRAUMATOLOGY :
Unfortunately there is no detailed statistics about specific traumas in the light aircraft field, but the death rate and the statistics of accidents strongly indicate that the vulnerable parts of the pilot’s body should be protected from frontal and lateral impacts.

Our website, www.helite.com, is a general presentation of the company Helite. Helite is an expert in airbag systems for individual protections. Helite has invented different airbag systems to fit specific applications such as high speed train applications, a range of motorcycle airbag jacket for two-wheeler drivers, an air vest for horseback riders and other specific airbag system for motor sports airbag systems. Our most popular product is the airbag jacket high visibility for motorcycles and the ProAir air vest for horse riders. Helite is made of a bunch of engineers from different backgrounds and technical prototype designers. Helite focuses on security by inventing products that protect effectively in case an accident happens. You will learn more about what we do by going through our website, www.helite.com.

Why wear an air jacket? An air vest is a revolution in the world of protection. The air vest will inflate and protect the rider from serious injuries. Helite has a unique activity as it focuses exclusively in improving and developing products such as the air vest. The risks of injuries are still very high but the air vest is a very good solution to save one's life or at least minimize the consequences of a bad fall. Finally, one of the big challenges for Helite is to offer an air vest that people are ready to wear. The point is not to buy the air vest and not wear it. So we make sure the air vest is attractive, light, comfortable, reusable and easy to wear.
