The unique light weight hoist harness was originally developed in close coordination with the Scottish Coast Guard. It comes in several versions to be able to match the special needs of SAR Squadrons world wide.
It is essential that the Lite Flite hoist harness allows the winch man to move his legs freely in order to support the rescued person during the hoist ride to the helicopter.
All Lite Flite hoist harnesses features the special split fork tang that fits directly into the Quick Release Box Mk-4 (and earlier).
This extremely comfortable harness is constructed without shoulder straps. Due to the special design of the front part, the waist belt locks itself on to the hips in case of a head down position, preventing the rescue man to slide in the harness.
