At Collins Aerospace, we manufacture our Winslow life rafts for the helicopter segment with only one thing in mind – to save your life.

You operate the best equipment, sparing no maintenance, because safety is your number one priority. When nothing less than the highest level of safety is acceptable, we deliver maximum protection with minimum weight.

Each life raft is meticulously handcrafted and individually tested for exceptional safety and performance. State-of-the-art technologies enable us to provide you with a compliant life raft that never compromises safety.

Every Collins Winslow helicopter life raft is vacuum packed in our UltimaWrap, which provides a barrier to moisture and atmospheric contamination and extends the life raft service to a full three years between scheduled maintenance.

We offer many packaging options, including hard packs, valise packs and canisters for deck mounting. This custom pack feature, combined with the minimum weight, provides more stowage options in or around the cockpit/helm area. Contact us for details on custom designed packs for specific helicopters.

ReversaSmart reversible life raft Type 1

The patented Collins Winslow ReversaSmart life raft is the most advanced TSO-approved reversible life raft in the world. Unlike competing reversible designs, with ReversaSmart there is no need for survivors to erect the canopy during the critical initial phase of survival.

Our unique RightUp Canopy with patented Smart Arch technology automatically erects the canopy for survivors’ immediate and complete protection. The ReversaSmart Ultra-Light (RVEL) life raft is designed specifically for helicopter operations and is suited for hostile sea environments.

FASA soft pack

FASA soft pack - Type 1 ultra-light, single arch, single floor

The Collins Winslow FASA Type 1 is a TSO C70a compliant dual-tube life raft designed for optimal weight savings and restrictive storage requirements on corporate aircraft.

Featuring a lightweight design that uses a single arch and single floor, it includes our Winslow UltimaWrap vacuum packaging, which provides a barrier to moisture and atmospheric contamination.

A three-year service cycle is standard with this life raft. Considered the traditional pack type for corporate aviation life rafts, its yellow fabric is pliable, durable and lighter weight than its hard-packed counterpart.

FASA hard pack

FASA hard pack - Type 1 ultra light, single arch, single floor

The Collins Winslow FASA Type 1 is a TSO C70a compliant dual-tube life raft designed for optimal weight savings and restrictive storage requirements on corporate aircraft.

Featuring a lightweight design that uses a single arch and single floor, it includes our Winslow UltimaWrap vacuum packaging, which provides a barrier to moisture and atmospheric contamination.

A three-year service cycle is standard with this life raft. In its hard-pack configuration, it is ideal for operations that demand a little extra pack durability, such as frequent installation and removal and rough contact with the tarmac. In unforgiving environments, the hard-pack configuration excels.

Super Light Rescue Raft (SLRR)

Super Light Rescue Raft

When your anticipated survival needs are short term, in protected waters or near shore, the Winslow Rescue Raft is the correct choice for you. This single buoyancy tube platform provides hypothermia protection, enhanced visibility and keeps everyone together as a group. Starting at only 16 pounds, the Rescue Raft is perfect for the small, single engine aircraft, where space and weight are at a premium.
Law Enforcement Emergency Pack (LEEP)

Law Enforcement Emergency Pack

Designed to be carried on law enforcement and emergency rescue helicopters, marine vessels or land vehicles for deployment to rescue survivors in the water. The life raft can deploy directly from the shore, from a marine vessel or air dropped from a hovering helicopter using a 10-foot static deployment line. The life raft is vacuum-packed in a valise case, then stored inside a protective Pelican case until needed.
Ultra Light Offshore (ULO)

Ultra Light Offshore

When safety and security are your top priority, but you are not required to carry an FAA approved life raft, the Winslow Ultra-Light Offshore (ULO) is the life raft for you. Modeled after the award winning Winslow FAUL, the ULO has all the benefits of our FAA approved life raft. With the ability to custom pack the life raft to fit your aircraft storage requirements, and starting at under 40 pounds, the Winslow ULO is the right life raft for all your helicopter and general aviation needs.
