Working in close vicinity to a spinning rotor in arctic conditions is a demanding situation faced daily by aircrews in northern climes. The gust produced by the rotor, hurling ice particles at up to 185 km/h in your face, often produces an effective temperature of well below -30°C. AUK Protection is now introducing a specialized garment line to increase security for arctic/alpine aircrews.

Back in 2010, a group of Swedish helicopter pilots decided they had had enough of the lack of quality and design in helmets, flight suits and other personal safety equipment intended for helicopter professionals. They started to collect data among their colleagues, and pretty soon there were a whole team of designers, high technology suppliers and medical researchers bent on solving the most critical issues. The mission statement was to create a global brand – by and for helicopter professionals – that can develop and deliver premium, hi-tech and user centered products to the global helicopter community. The company was formally founded in 2012, and after a two years of intense R&D the brand was ready to launch its first products.
The company is based an old button factory in the tiny village of Brattland, a few clicks from Åre in Jämtland, Sweden. However, our mission is a global one, as is our users. Thus product and brand development happens globally, while research is conducted by active helicopter pilots in close cooperation with designers and engineers. Medical and/or material research is conducted at the the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and at the Mid Sweden Univerisity (MIUN/Sportech). Actual production facilities are either in Sweden and/or within the EU.
Current products available for purchase:
The G1 Flight Suit – designed to reduce fatigue and support your movements both in and out of cockpit.
The G2 Winter Flight Suit – same characteristics as G1, but designed to offer full protection in arctic/alpine conditions
The J2 Base Parka – blizzard proof protection for when in close proximity of rotors in arctic/alpine conditions
The H1 Pilot/crew Helmet – the world's first ergonomic helicopter helmet developed by aircrews
The R1 Marine Safety Helmet – a modular helmet concept for rescue swimmers, coast guards etc.
The P1 Crew Pants – ultra durable work pants devised for pilots, crew and maintenance functions
