Abstract : An investigation was undertaken to determine the effect of windblast on the A/P22S-4 High Altitude Flying Outfit during simulated pilot ejection at a maximum sea-level flight Mach number of 0.91 (600 Knots). Two A/P22S-4 Outfits were tested. The integrity of both outfits was satisfactorily demonstrated, although slight damage resulted. The test further demonstrated that velcro tape is a satisfactory substitute for the lacing cord currently used for fastening the exterior cover and restraint layer at the ventilation port, altimeter, and controller locations.
