Survival Products

Survival Products had another aircraft emergency rescue using model No. 1400-3, a four-man inflatable life raft that weighs 12 pounds. In January 2012, a father/daughter team were flying their Cirrus SR22 from Miami to Haiti when they were forced to make an emergency landing in the Bahamas. From the wing of their plane, they deployed the SPI raft, which inflates in 10 seconds. They were picked up by a U.S. Coast Guard rescue helicopter. Visit
