Flying a vital mission with lives on the line. Then a hot spot starts to develop that leads to headaches, fatigue and a distraction I can’t afford. There I was, using poorly designed add-on equipment that was meant to make my job and mission easier, when it was clear to me that it was engineered by a team that didn’t actually know the job and its requirements. There I was, when safety equipment should have prevented or reduced an injury, and a fellow crew member had less than the best available, because the technology was not keeping up with current materials and innovations. Here I am, thinking that if I could just bring the right minds and passions together we could propel the aviation helmet industry forward… and we have!

It is my honor to work with such a team at Paraclete Aviation Life Support,

CW5 RET. J. Scott Hedges
President and Founder
