The PILOT BUDDY is a pillot actuated safety and restraint system for hand propping and tail tie down. A 100 HP piston engine with climb propeller can produce about 500-700 pounds of thrust. The Pilot buddy is therefore constructed to meet and exceed that load for purpose of positive restraint. The Pilot Buddy has a Black Velour storage Pouch (4" x 5"), and a slighty smaller restraint loop ring. The entire device and storage package weighs less than 2 OZ, and fits in the palm of your hand. Both the restraint loop (Left side-4 Yards=12'); and the release lanyard (Right side -6 yards = 18') are constructed of MIL Specification, MIL-C-5040, 750 pound test line. The Swing Latch Shackle release is test certified to 800 pounds tensils strength for operating loads. The Swing Latch mating ring on the Restraint loop (Left Side), is a ring contructed to MIL Specification. MS27762, with a tensile strength of more than 750 pounds. Package comes with instructions, a checklist for use, and other increasing safety materials.
