GENTEX HGU 56 "COMMERCIAL" HELICOPTER PILOT HELMET! Armys newest helicopter helmet, Gentexs HGU-56, is being used by the U. Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and by the Marine Corps for V-22 Osprey operations. The HGU-56 offers greater impact and tear protection than other helicopter helmets as well as many other improvements. The HGU-56 shell is a hybrid composite made from SPECTRA® and graphite embedded in an epoxy matrix.Graphite provides the stiffness and rigidity needed for NVG goggles. SPECTRA® helps prevent penetration of the helmet and helps the helmet withstand multiple impacts that are common in helicopter accidents. SPECTRA® also allows the HGU-56 shell to flex during an impact as a means of dissipating energy. This rare HGU 56 Commercial Version is equipped with the newest version of Gentexs new Super Comfort Liner SCL which is very comfortable. And ensures great stability of the helmet on the head. The dual visor module assembly includes outer dark and inner clear impact-resistant, UV-absorbing lenses.
