Abstract
Trials were conducted to evaluate the survival gear currently in use by CF-18 pilots during operations in the arctic. The CF-18 rationalization included the contents of the Survival Vest, Jet Aircraft (8415-21-907-0720), and the Survival Kit, Rigid Seat, Global CF-18 Aircraft (1680-21-904-8751). Trials took place 12-16 Feb 1993 at Burnt Lake Alberta, a satellite position from CFB Cold Lake. The participants simulated 24 hours of survival after an ejection in the arctic. It was concluded that the present configuration of the CF-18 RSSK is sufficient for survival in winter conditions for at least 24 hours. Specific changes to many of the survival items are suggested, and some further investigations are required.
