Abstract
In 1982 the CF decided to adopt the Model 190 aircrew helmet and P/Q oxygen mask with wire suspension system for use by aircrew in the air combat manoeuvering (ACM) role. Numerous difficulties were encountered during their introduction into service. The resolution of these difficulties required substantial modifications to the helmet, consequently redesignated the Model 190A, and replacement of the P/Q mask with the MBU 12/P. This report details the complex history of the related events to date. It is intended to be a reference document for personnel involved in the use or support of this equipment and perhaps also in efforts to evaluate and bring into service other types of Aviation Life Support Equipment.
