The description says this helmet would be perfect for use in the L-39 Albatros -- but actually it would be quite inappropriate for use in any jet warbird, for several reasons. 1. ANR is almost worthless with jet engines. 2. A full-enclosure helmet is needed at the higher speeds of a jet, otherwise it could rip right off your head in an ejection/bailout.
This helmet is fine for use in all the other aircraft mentioned in the description.
