Abstract : The patent application concerns a lightweight helmet which can be custom fitted to a pilot's head and can be formed in the field by an in situ foaming process. The helmet liner contains air ducts integrated with the foamed structure through which cooling air can be passed to keep the pilot's head at a comfortable temperature. Such a lightweight, air cooled, form fitting helmet will keep a proper attitude on the pilot's head during all aircraft maneuvers.
