"If there's a mother of all aviation survival kits, the Doug Ritter Ultimate Aviator Survival Pak certainly qualifies. Of the comprehensive kits, the Doug Ritter Ultimate Aviator Survival Pak is hands down the most inclusive."
       - The Aviation Consumer, March 2006 Issue

"Due to the large number of advertised aviation survival kits, rather than evaluate all that we surveyed, we’ll run through ones that we liked from the high end down...Our first selection is the Ultimate Aviator Survival Pak from"
       - The Aviation Consumer, December 2021 Issue

My Doug Ritter Aviator Survival Paks were developed to provide descriminating and safety oriented pilots the very best aviation survival kit that they can bet their life on at a price that won't break the bank.

March 27, 2023: If you are interested in one of my acclaimed Ultimate Aviator Survival Paks, I am building these kits in batches in order to keep costs down. The last run of kits sold for $3,056. The next run, likely in Fall of 2023, could be a bit less or more, depending on component costs. If you would like to get on the list for the next run, please email me If you have any questions or if you need one urgently, please email me, but be advised there will be a premium over regular cost for a one-off build.

The following options are available:

Option: The .5 Module that adds Personal Protection gear for 1 additional person (3 total, packed in the UASP) will add $304.

Option: The +2 Add-on Module, which is packed separately in a smaller pack and also includes food and water for an additional 2 people, will be $872. The Plus 2 Add-on Module is designed to be used only in combination with the UASP and is not a stand-alone survival kit.

Option: Green Rescue Laser Flare: $130 (replaces Red Laser Light)

As a result of some requests to add more trauma capability to the medical (first aid) supplies:

Option: Upgrade to QuikClot/Celox Z-Fold Gauze - 3" x 5 ft: $30 (brand depends on availability - replaces QuikClot Advanced Clotting Gauze - 3 x 24 inches)

Option: Tactical Medical Solutions SOF Tactical Tourniquet and Full-Size EMT Shears (staged for use in a nylon quick access pouch): $71

At this time the 2-liter Platypus Water Tanks have limited availability and I may use either a single 4 liter or 6 liter if necessary.

Color of the sil-nylon tarp shelter will vary depending on material availability.

Payment in full is required in advance once I get enough orders to do a run or if on a on-off basis. We will invoice you and it can be paid by check, wire transfer or Zelle (if you need info on using Zelle, please email me). No, we do not accept credit cards or PayPal.

With shipping costs threatening to rise again, we will invoice shipping separately when shipped (at my cost). Shipping is via UPS Ground (continental U.S. only), Direct Signature Required and Insured for the full purchase price. Last time shipping cost varied from $100 to $200 (distance and other factor dependent - shipping to a commercial location saves a few bucks).

It should take about 6-7 weeks to build the kits once all payments are received. The long lead items require approximately 4-5 weeks. As always these days, that is subject to supply chain difficulties that I have no ability to predict.

Any questions, please email me. If you are interested in one of my Ultimate Aviator Survival Paks, please email me:
