2017 Pressure Suit Ready to Fly

Eight years of design, building and testing seven models of a functional pressure suit, for my forthcoming expeditions to high altitudes, have resulted in the garment below. Weight 12.5lb, cost <$1,000, operating pressure 3.5psi (pure oxygen environment), overpressure valve opening 4.2psi, includes thermal garment for heat and cooling, integral communicatuions and biomedical monitoring devices, push-to-talk stud activators on gauntlets (not seen here), a unique stress-distributing 'x band' system (yet to be completed) and many more features. The entire ensemble is flameproof and has features allowing a long hike out of remote terrain. All home made in countless hours of stitching and other assembly and listening to an endless parade of audiobooks!

My flight training resumes 28 May for a 17 Aug final flying test to earn pilot's wings! I am looking forward to it.
