Royal Air Force MK 1 Flight Helmet
Royal Air Force MK 1 Flight Helmet

    The MK 1 Royal Air Force (RAF) Flight Helmet has an inner cloth helmet which contains the avionics (speaker & microphone) and also has the M-type Oxygen mask. In addition with this set is a tropical cloth head harness. These harnesses were used when flying in tropical conditions.

    The MK-1A was issued in the early 1950`s and was the first RAF helmet with a visor which locked at various positions and was issued in various tints from clear to dark tinted. The RAF MK-1A Flight Helmet superseded the MK-1, this having a separate visor fitted by elastic straps.

The MK 1 has an inner cloth helmet which contains the avionics (speaker & microphone). In addition with this set is a tropical cloth head harness. These harnesses were used when flying in tropical conditions.

     The MK-1A was originally used by all front line pilots flying rotary & fixed wing aircraft, this included subsonic & supersonic aircraft, everything from early Hunters to Lightning's and continued in limited use until the late 70`s and finally used by training squadrons (EFTS/UAS) until the late 80`s. Although designed to be used with the G-Type Helmet and H-Type oxygen-mask, the helmet was also used with the A-13 oxygen-mask & later the P-Type oxygen-mask. This later usage with the P-Type mask caused wear & tear problems to the helmet edge roll due to the protruding P-type mask fittings abasing the helmet leather lining & rubber edge trim. The MK-1A was originally issued in a silver colored shell, but later examples were issued in matt Green and Grey.
