I have a background in emergency response, including medical, so I'm curious what kind of rescue/survival equipment folks carry in their aircraft. Obviously it will vary for those who travel over water, so there should be a variety of inputs. I don't see a lot of commercially available kits for private aircraft, so I'm looking at getting some of the stuff that's commonly marketed to boaters (flares, smoke, etc.) and customizing/supplementing for my needs. I'll also be adding stuff I carry in my trauma bags, but I'm curious what other people have or are considering. One thing I will recommend now, and not just for aircraft, is something called an IPOK. Google it. I will make some more recommendations later, but I kind of want to see what others have thought of along these lines.
