M69

The Aircrew Mask

As the air purifying respirator (APR) for aircrew, the M69 has been specifically developed to meet the unique requirements of users who require CBRN protection at high altitudes.

Based on the proven M53 specialist mask platform, the M69 has been specifically developed to meet the unique requirements of aircrew wearers who require CBRN respiratory protection at all altitudes up to 40,000ft (12,000m).

The M69 sets a new level of performance and capability to meet the changing needs of today’s modern aircrew. Leveraging the core features of the M53 mask, the platform delivers the lowest cost of ownership of any fixed wing aircrew system.

This new generation of fixed wing aircrew mask from Avon Protection, compliments the widely used M50, M53 and M53A1 ground masks to allow for reduced logistical burden and training.
