The Pilot is a square shaped liferaft which is manufactured from fluorescent yellow polyurethane coated nylon with improved flame retardancy. The canopy is an integral part of the raft, and is automatically erected and supported in position by an inflatable arch tube. The Arch tube also acts as another buoyancy compartment, in addition to the primary buoyancy tube being designed with a non-return CO2 valve. The entrance to the raft can be sealed with velcro to enclose the occupants from the elements. The Pilot liferaft features stabilising water pockets fitted to the underside of the floor to prevent capsize in rough water, and a boarding anchor is fitted at the entrance. The liferaft is fully equipped with internal and external lifelines, a rescue line and quoit, a sea anchor drogue and an internally stowed emergency pack positioned under the boarding ladder for immediate use. The Pilot liferaft is packed in a flexible valise which is held closed with a velcro fastening. A gas cylinder cord is stowed under a flat pocket on one side of the valise. The RFD Pilot is a British made product.

Designed and build to survive the cold waters of Europe.
