Aviator
Aviator
Arrow Dynamics   (4687 Hits)

Description
A new composite freefly helmet from the makers of the Renegade and Arrowhead RW helmets. This freefly helmet comes complete with a padded chin-strap and The Aviator also incorporates very soft liner padding that is both functional and comfortable. Arrow Dynamics has redesigned both the Aviator and the Hawkeye (camera) helmets. The major difference is that the Aviator will now have a molded external audible port, rather than the strap on one, and the Hawkeye will come standard with a double right side mount. In addition, if you order the ratchet chin cup assembly with the Hawkeye, they will supply the chin cup the same color as the helmet.

You get what you pay for 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: FlyingBlueJay, 2007-08-23


My Aviator was the first helmet I bought. I tried a number of different helmets but it seemed to be the best bang for the buck. It's very comfortable, flys great, and judging by little nicks and scratches, it's saved me from a bit of pain.
That being said, after about 10 jumps the rubber lining around the front and down the sides of the front came loose. I was able to place it back on, but it came apart again flapping around in freefall and hanging off to the side under canopy. I hot glued it back on and it was great for about 40 jumps. The rubber has now started to come off again.
I'm pretty annoyed by this. Though the price is relatively low, I expected it to stay in one piece.


The best non-camera helmet I've seen so far 5 out of 5 stars

I bought my aviator used (with my rig) and it's a fabulous helmet.

It fits nicely; the soft chin straps works well; I can hear my audible perfectly in the internal pocket; Plus I think it looks great!

The lack of hard-shell on the forehead is both good and bad: It's bad because obviously you have no frontal protection. But it's great because you can lift goggles and put them on your forehead without taking off the helmet in the plane and under canopy. (It might also be why I have to wear my goggles a bit tighter when I go headdown: no shell to deflect the air)


Most comfortable helmet I've tried on 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: xero, 2004-01-05


Previously, I had a BoneHead Mindwarp (old style with external audible pocket), and was never really satisfied with the fit. Since I started jumping with two audibles, I ordered an Aviator. I originally ordered my helmet with only one audible pocket, but someone from Arrow Dynamics called and gave me another port on the other side at no extra cost. The helmet had a fairly short delivery time of three weeks for the custom color (blue).

The helmet is very lightweight, and much more comfortable than my old helmet. The audibles are much easier to hear with the internal pockets.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the helmet, and I've had it for about four months.
