Crewman Flight Harness

Emergco’s Crewman Flight Harness is a personnel-carrying device system (PCDS) created specifically for aerial applications to provide maximum strength, comfort, durability, and ease of use. The harness provides superior weight distribution due to its unique design and full support leg straps, resulting in the first harness to combine the security of a full body harness with the comfort of a seat harness.

For fixed load line operations (short-haul or Emergco’s HETS™), hoisting, or rappel operations, the harness has a main mid-sternum tri-link connection point.

The Crewman Flight Harness is available with a number of options, including tactical black, integrated Personal Flotation Device, Lite version with no gear loops, rear and side attachment points, and a variety of accessories to assist in specialty operations.
