AVI Survival Products 10 Person Life Raft conforms to the latest FAA TSO C70a requirement. The life raft has a double tube inflatable design, classified as a Type I Transport Category life raft recommended for On-Demand and Corporate Aviation.
The 10 Person life raft series is constructed with the latest Urethane coated Nylon Fabric, with a single tube internal bulkhead design that are attached using hot air welding. Welding the fabric together tightly seals the seams together creating two separate chambers. Each raft includes a stabilizing Water Ballast system, a hand pump, bailing bucket, a sea anchor, secured life-lines on the exterior perimeter of the raft for use of survivors in the water, and an inflation/retaining line that is attached to a high strength patch on the raft to prevent drifting and a water activated locator light. Aluminum cylinders and valves are added to reduce corrosion while packed and in use. The Soft-Pack Valise is made of heavy-duty polyester fabric with secured Velcro closures for a tightly packed raft.
These rafts are engineered to reduce overall weight and deliver a compact design for easy transport and stowage for any aircraft compartment. AVI life rafts come with a 5-year warranty on parts and labor, built to last a lifetime with proper care.
TSO Life Rafts are recommended for those who charter flight and/or are categorized as Part 121 or 135 Operators. The RAF1210-303 includes the FAR 121 TSO Survival Equipment Kit that meets FAA regulations.
