Pilot and copilot seats are equipped with a lap safety belt and inertia reel shoulder harness with a manual lock-unlock handle. The reel will automatically lock when the helo encounters a longitudinal impact and a deceleration force of 2 to 3 G’s.
Both cockpits are accessed via forward hinged doors that are jettisonable in the event of an emergency landing or are removable during the execution of external lifts.
The caution panel is located on the instrument panel. Illumination of any of the lights on the caution panel alerts the pilot to a system fault or condition. The caution panel is powered by ESS #2 BUS and is protected by the CAUTION LT circuit breaker.
