Question for students, self-fly hire pilots, and those that fly several machines.

Do you have your own headset that you keep with you, or do the helicopters you fly have sets left in them for each occupant?

That answers that then, thanks woz. Wink

You second guessed my real question! It came about as I was chatting to a PPL(A) friend, who was saying that he has his own, and never seen a plane with headsets in place. And of course, I've never seen a heli without them.

Out of interest then, does anyone have their own set(s)? Why? What is it?

Cool

All the helis I have flown have had headsets on board. Some of them though seem to make my ears really sore if worn for lengthy periods of time. I would have to figure out which type I find really comfortable before I considered buying a pair.

If the headsets are making your ears sore, then the gels probably need replacing. Mention it to your school; it's a fairly simple job to do.

I think I figured out why they were making my ears sore - I wear glassed for flying and I think the headset was pressing the ends of my glasses into backs of my ears. Hmm maybe I should see my optician to get more comfortable ones instead!

Hmm, as a fellow spectacled one, I don't really suffer with my ears being sore from my glasses. Although, after a while with the headset on, it's more the heat build up that makes me uncomfortable!

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows why in Aviation they use such antiquated looking jack plugs for the audio systems.
I have worked in audial environments now for over 16 years and it would make things so much easier if they all used standard 1/4" jack plugs.

I can say without a doubt that if ever I got a heli of my own I would probably keep the old style plugs but add in some converted sockets and plugs so that you could use whatever headset that you like with them as there are so many other very good headphone sets that you can get out there which are nothing to do with the Aviation industry.

Just my thoughts!!

So is there a concensus about a good entry-level headset for helicopters..?
