Aircrew Finger Torches
AirLite NVG Finger Torches
AirLite NVG Compatible Aircrew finger torches, (supplied by MJ Services (GB) Ltd) have been procured by the UK MoD on a long term contract. They are used by UK military aviators in all three Services. Our Airlite Finger Torches are also in use by many police forces, air ambulance crews and civilian pilots throughout the UK and other European countries.
Cleared for use in many different types of aircraft from Eurofighter Typhoon fighters to C130 and the majority of helicopters, the finger torch has been rigorously tested for performance and safety in the cockpit. They are the only torches cleared for aircrew use by the UK Technical Authorities.
The torches are ruggedized, to a water resistant design, and are capable of taking the harshest abuse. They are light enough to be unnoticed by the wearer and powerful enough to provide an immediate and accurate lighting solution in a wide variety of scenarios. The torches have two light settings, normal for close-up work such as map illumination, and bright for wider lighting needs such as cabin or terrain illumination.
The battery time is up to 20hrs on normal light setting and uses 3 COTS SR44 batteries. There is an automatic OFF after 8 minutes preventing battery drain.
The torch is very simple to wear on either the left or right index finger. The torches have an adjustable strap so can be worn with or without gloves. Operation is one handed by the thumb to allow your other hand to remain free.
Flipping between the normal and bright light modes is simply done by pressing and holding down the on/off switch.
