The Planning – Survival Gear

Posted: January 19, 2014 in Adventure

The survival gear we carry in the plane must be planned out very carefully.  I have the mindset that WE WILL HAVE TO DITCH.  Therefore, we plan to have insulated wet suits that are a requirement for an Atlantic crossing, life jackets, 4-person raft, survival pack containing (MREs) food and water for five days, shark repellent, InReach real time GPS tracker, compass, PLB (Personal Locator Beacons), battery powered strobe lights, and a Satellite phone.  Apart from this, we will also carry fishing gear to allow us to catch fish, if need be.  We will have to balance out what all we carry because weight and balance will limit us in what we can load up in the plane and carry with us….. I am also in contact with some survival guru’s to seek their opinion and advice on anything else we may need……
