    Default Helmets

    I wanted to get some views on wearing a helmet in the CC. What is recommended? Which helmets are recommended? Can I fit my Bose A20 in them?

    There are quite a few on the market now and Acme Aero had a YouTube live yesterday announcing theirs and like some others horrendously expensive. I don't get the price points of these helmets and think they are after the wealthy persons' wallet with no justification for the price points they're asking. The only one that seems reasonable is Sky Cowboy Supply Co in my opinion. Flighthelmet.com was recommended to me as well and they have nice helmets, horrendously expensive, but they can convert my Air Force A-10 helmet which is custom fit to my head which I may consider. The problem is I'm not sure the Bose A20 is reversible once integrated into the helmet so you're committed but with the Sky Cowboy that doesn't seem to be the case.

    If I don't go the route of having my A-10 helmet (Gentex HGU-55) converted I'll likey go with Sky Cowboy. I'm still on the fence of helmet or not and there may be times to wear one and times to have a more leisurely flying and comfort. We'll see.

    P.S. The cost to convert my Air Force helmet exceeds the cost of the Sky Cowboy Helmet so I have to weigh that in but that pushes me towards Sky Cowboy as well.

    i have a Lift helmet, a bonehead helmet and a new Acme Aero helmet. They all have Bose headsets in them. Iíve been wearing a helmet for about a year in a half now. There all good. I havenít flown with the Acme helmet yet but Iím headed to Arkansas then Idaho so Iíll have a pretty good idea how i like it. Iíd say the fit and finish and adjustability of this new Acme is the best for sure. I visited the manufacturer who been doing strictly military helmets, they where in testing at the time he told me they would be tested to military standards. The lift is nice I donít like the visor isnít attached other then the strap,it comfortablle. Getting a Bose head set in it isnít a easy task. The bonehead is nice I have a little trouble getting it to fit and seal on my head. You can get from Tac Aero with Bose in it and it is comfortable.I tryed one of those search and rescue helmet with the Bose headsets. Wasnít for me at all. Felt like I had my old skate board helmet on. But I know some people who love them ,so thatís just me. I donít see any reason not to wear one. It is extremely quite when itís on, takes a little while to hear whatís going on with the plane when you first start wearing it.
