How Does My Flight Suit Protect Me?


One of the main functions of wearing a flight suit is to ensure that you stay well protected from any eventuality. A flight suit must not only be comfortable to wear, but must be able to effectively resist fire and protect the wearer in infrared sights. Carter Industries’ flight suits are trusted by the US Military precisely because they can offer this essential protection.

Protection From Extreme Temperatures And Flame Resistance Built In

Carter’s Nomex flight suits are made from 92% meta aramid fibers which are not only highly resistant to extreme temperatures but also abrasion and chemical degradation. Able to effectively withstand tensile stress even when exposed to temperatures as high as 400 degrees Celsius, our suits ensure maximum safety for the wearer in dangerous conditions where flames may be encountered.

NIR Compliance For Optimal Safety In The Field

A flight suit which protects the wearer’s presence from being detected by their enemy is the best possible choice in the field. Carter’s NIR Compliant Nomex flight suits allow wearers to remain unseen by making them appear to have the same level of radiation as the atmosphere surrounding them. NIR (or Near-Infrared) Image Converters are often used to spot the infrared radiation released by humans that cannot be seen by the naked human eye. Our Nomex flight suits ensure that members of the military remain unnoticed by blending the radiation they release with the atmosphere around them.

Not only can NIR Compliant flight suits prevent the wearer’s detection by an NIR Image Converter, they can also make the wearer less visible when in a low light environment as they reduce light reflection. This makes them, overall, the safest option when in the field.

The Ultimate In Comfort

When you feel comfortable in your flight suit, you can focus fully on the operation in hand. Carter’s flight suits are designed to be extremely comfortable to wear thanks to their breathable fabric construction that keeps the wearer cool, a glove-like fit, adjustable Velcro waist belt, two-way zippers and a number of highly functional pockets that allow for the storage of all of the essentials when out on the field.

Carter’s signature CWU 27/P Nomex flight suit is made in the USA, so you can be certain that only the best equipment and materials have been used in its manufacture.
