Pilots VKS received new flight jackets

35
The pilots of the Russian VKS have received new leather flight jackets (the 6220 product), which withstand open flames for several minutes and also allow you to safely eject at high altitude at speeds above 1,2 thousand m / s. News.




Tests of our product are completed. Testing jackets were held at 929 State Flight Research Center. Specialists of the leading Russian enterprise - manufacturer of flight and space equipment - NPP Zvezda took part in them. Our products are already supplied to the flight parts of the VKS. By the end of the year, the military will receive about a thousand new jackets,
Victoria Eliferova, a representative of the Okrug company, told the newspaper.

The main know-how of the jacket in high-quality leather with special chemical impregnation, as well as special inserts that make the pilot's work comfortable. The thickness of the material is about a centimeter. In this case, the jacket is elastic and has a small weight. The skin withstands ingress of oil, aviation fuel and other technical fluids.

The jacket has a complex design of sealed pockets. “It allows you to connect anti-drop overalls (PPK) to the“ board ”of the aircraft. PPK is the most important element of a pilot's equipment, which is worn over the flight overalls. Without it, it is impossible to perform aerobatics and flight at high speeds. The pilot will instantly faint or die from a cerebral hemorrhage. The control panel has a lot of special chambers where compressed air is supplied. In case of overloads so that the blood does not leave the brain, the chambers fill with air, redistributing the pressure over the body. Feed tubes have a complex shape and design. Therefore, it is very important that outerwear does not interfere with the circulation of air through them, ”says the material.

During the tests, the jacket was blown in a wind tunnel at speeds of 1,2 thousand m / s. This confirmed the possibility of safe ejection from the aircraft. In addition, the product was exposed to an open flame, remaining unscathed for several minutes.

Modern combat aircraft is complex aviation complex. But in order to perform combat missions on it, the pilot must be dressed in high-tech clothing and equipment. The pilot has to endure long flights, which alternate with the performance of aerobatics. On the one hand, the pilot should be as comfortable as possible, and on the other, his body should be completely protected from overload. Also, flying is associated with high risk. Therefore, the uniform must save from fires, bumps and cuts,
told military expert Anton Lavrov.

Currently on the VKS supply are flight jackets, developed in the middle of the 1950-s. In the middle of 2000-x this element of the flight form has ceased to be issued. The pilots flew in fabric jackets. And for everyday wear, at their own expense, they bought non-certified flight-style leather jackets.

          Yes, in several layers done. Do you think the scallops on the sole of the shoe were invented for better friction? No, before the skin for the sole was laid in several layers, glued and stitched with threads. And so that the threads would not be erased when walking, such scars were cut with a knife and the stitches of the threads were made in them.
          Everything is new - well-forgotten old (s)

          Another thing is surprising. In the courtyard is the 21st century, what progress has been achieved in everything, but it turns out that man never came up with anything better than ordinary skin.

            Why be surprised? Nature has polished this material (skin) for millions of years. And humanity by these standards has not even learned to speak.

              So then it is.
              But, if you do not take into account the theory of "directed by the Higher Mind of evolution", then in nature evolution is ruled by a blind chance, verified by practice for millions of years. So, for example, the efficiency of photosynthesis is 11%. It is not known exactly, but most likely it was the same in dinosaur times. And the structure of the spine of primates and humans (the lumbar region) - is checked by evolution before the birth of the offspring, and what will happen next - is already checking on children, from here the problems with rheumatism in the elderly. And there are many such flaws.
              And if the Higher Mind exists, then it is clearly hacking (see flaws above).
              We have a scientific, directed approach. How much time has passed from the first steam locomotives to a diesel electric locomotive? From the first plane to space flight. From the first electronic programmable calculators to multi-core processors with distributed computing.
              So we have every chance to surpass nature. But not yet in everything hi

      Want is not harmful. Somehow I saw this type of jacket in the Army of Russia store. Good, but for what 80 mowers?
      And the real one will be even more expensive.

      So I thought so! Although immediately "1,2 thousand m / s" seemed nonsense!

      No, unfortunately ... maybe when it comes down to a real flying jacket, I'll take it. I looked at the flying jackets at the mattresses. I’ll also say nothing like that. But the new one costs from 30 to 65 thousand ...

    Demolition was not leather jackets of the old slightly sample, without a seam in the middle on the back ...
    But at one time they began to issue us with a seam, the quality became worse ... But who didn’t get it, they bought it at Tekhnoavio in Moscow, but the quality was horrible ... And the navigational watches were one-on-one, but expensive .. .
    But my living is still fishing, and so on ...

      It was such jackets that went into perestroika, the quality was not just worse, but it was just ugly. And with old jackets (until perestroika times) it was like luck, if a new jacket, and not restored, which was impossible to determine, then yes, it remained If not, then the jacket quickly took on a worn out appearance, then it was necessary to smear and tidy up with brown shoe cream. It was very rare to fly in leather jackets, usually on business trips.

        In the summer and in the demi-season, try to come to the “high-rise” in something else - they don’t understand, sir! But this, however, in the 80s.

          In summer, they flew in overalls, and about jackets, if everything was in demi-season, then there were no one in leather, and unlike leather, they were in high-rise lockers, leather houses were stored. These jackets were larger to fit in, to fly to They were uncomfortable.

    Well, well, it’s good on paper, but in life for 10 years, I never received full-time uniforms. It is necessary to introduce responsibility for not issuing regular uniforms of appropriate quality, including financial and criminal, for everyone, regardless of their position.

    And someone soberly accept the link to the safety of leaving the aircraft at a speed of 1500 meters per second (!). For your information, the speed of sound at sea level is about 330 meters per second. Yes, even with a wind load of 200 meters per second, a pancake will remain from a person. So this is reminiscent of a joke: "The man in the galoshes of our company fell on the 8th floor. The man was scraped off the asphalt, but the galoshes are as good as new."
