Helmets Visors USAF / USN / USAA

                                          Helmet Visors 

The  EDO /GENTEX Bungee Visor Assembly offers reduced weight 

and bulk while  maintaining required levels of protection for  

Aeromiltec fixed wing helmet systems. The Gentex high-speed 

Bungee Visor Assembly comes as an optional upgrade to the 

Aeromiltec HGU-55/P Fixed Wing Helmet System, providing 

ejection safety up to 600 KEAS. Includes a friction strip on 

helmet brow edge roll for retention during windblast.


Easily attaches to helmet by snaps, using elastic or “bungee” straps, 

which allows complete adjustment for positioning the visor and 

oxygen mask to get a good fit. Available in neutral, clear, gradient, 

amber, high contrast and laser protection versions.

Fully approved for use by the U.S. Air Force for high-speed ejection use.

Compatible with Aeromiltec’s HGU-55/P Fixed Wing Helmet Systems.

Available in trims for Gentex  & Avox MBU-20/P and MBU-23/P Oxygen Masks


Qualified at 600 KEAS at attitudes specified in MIL-H-85047 including 

head on/head up, rotated 45° starboard/head up, head on/tilted 

45° aft and rotated 45° port/tilted 45° aft.


Gentex visor lenses are designed to seamlessly fit with the 

STEP-IN® and all our visor assemblies. Compatible visor 

assemblies are available for all of our aircrew helmet systems. 

Gentex helmet systems also come with a visor housing, which 

protects visors from damage from scratches and flying debris, 

provides the means to adjust visor positions, and provides a 

stable platform for the mounting of Night Vision Goggles

The STEP-IN provides eye protection and allows proper eye relief 

while using Night Vision Goggles (NVGs). Its contoured shape and 

finished edge conform to the helmet-shell edge rather than suspending

over the front of its shell, creating a fit that’s closer to the face than 

other visors. STEP-IN visors can be used with the Gentex HGU-55/P,

HGU-68/Pand the HGU-84/P Helmet Systems to provide eye 

protection while also allowing the use of NVGs and HMDs.


Optional upgrade to Gentex HGU-55/P, HGU-68/P or HGU-84/P 

Helmet Systems.Lens is moved approximately 1 inch closer to 

the face. Clear or laser protective lenses available. Compatible
