wt requirements

  1. 0 Hi,
    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.

    Equipment 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.

    I 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.
