AVI Survival Products 4 and 8 Person Life Raft conforms to the latest FAA TSO C70a requirement. The life raft has a single tube in­flatable design, classified as a Type II Non-Transport category life raft recommended for Corporate and General Aviation.

The 4 and 8 Person life raft series is constructed with the latest Urethane coated Nylon Fabric, with a single tube internal bulkhead design that are attached using hot air welding. Welding the fabric together tightly seals the seams together creating two separate chambersEach raft includes a stabilizing water ballast system, a hand pump, bailing bucket, a sea anchor, secured life-lines on the exterior perimeter of the raft for use of survivors in the water, and an inflation/retaining line that is attached to a high strength patch on the raft to prevent drifting and a water activated locator light. Aluminum cylinders and valves are added to reduce corrosion while packed and in use. The Soft-Pack Valise is made of heavy-duty polyester fabric with secured Velcro closures for a tightly packed raft.

These rafts are engineered to reduce overall weight and deliver a compact de­sign for easy transport and stowage for any aircraft compartment. AVI life rafts come with a 5-year warranty on parts and labor, built to last a lifetime with proper care.
