Impressive Comfort and Sound Protection
"I flew with the ZetaLiner® [Helmet Liner and other Upgrade components] in my HGU-68P for the S-3B and was very impressed with the comfort and sound protection. Usually, I’m turning up the volume on the radios while we are flying at higher airspeeds, but not so today. The liner and ear protection worked as advertised." — Lt. F.O.
Comfortable and Quiet

Long Flights are an Absolute Pleasure
"When I found that my old ‘poured’ liner was not usable I almost cried! I could not imagine trying to fit a new helmet by myself. But then I bought a helmet with the Oregon Aero® Upgrade. This helmet fit wonderfully from the first moment I put it on. Now long flights are an absolute pleasure." — Dick Keyt, air racer and airline pilot, Polen chief pilot and president, Polen Education Foundation.
