VIKING RINGS THE BELL ON MAJOR MILITARY AGREEMENT
Five years in the making, VIKING Life-Saving Equipment has received the final approval from the US Naval Air Force for its PS4049 Quick Donning Suit. Designed specifically for use by US military flight crews, the innovative suits will be employed on the P-3, C-130, E-6 Aircraft and new P-8 manufactured by Boeing. VIKING vice president of the Americas Al Osle made the announcement.
"We've been working closely with NAVAIR to deliver a suit that greatly improves the safety of naval airmen," said Osle. "This effort, along with our new facility in Norfolk, Virginia, demonstrates our continued commitment to the commercial marine and military sectors."
