When applying for flight positions they state a wt requirement of 220 pounds or less (including gear).......what gear do they mean and how much does it weigh.
- Nov 30, '08 by chareEquipment includes flightsuit and helmet. Also consider that many programs require above the ankle leather boots and some programs might issue a survival vest and/or jacket as well.
You should be able to contact someone at the program to get an an estimate of the equipment weight, however if unable to I would plan on at least 10 pounds, and it could easily be more.
- Nov 30, '08 by Medic09I second that answer. Heck, I think just the stuff in my pockets and such are more than 5 pounds.
I weigh 148; I tell the pilots to count on me as 165.
