Default Portable oxygen system suggestions...

...

It is for ocassional flights only e.g. 1x or 2x a year at 15000 ft,
for 1-2 hrs, and 1 or 2 people but expandable to 4. In Europe.

I have looked at the Aerox one with their oxymiser canulas, but wonder
if a proper mask isn't a better way to go, and it should use less
oxygen. The problem is the mike and the wiring - trivial enough but a
hassle since I am not legally allowed to do it myself and doing it
properly involves fitting a 2nd mike connector somewhere, in parallel
with my aircraft-powered Bose headset... But some masks have a hole in
the side and you just poke the existing mike through there,
apparently.. also there are cheap masks for about $10 and silicone
ones for $200+ (w/o a mike).

I have the Aircraft Spruce catalogue for reference also; they sell the
Aerox and some apparently very similar systems.

Any suggestions, or what to avoid, would be appreciated.


I would suggest portable system with oxymiser cannulas. Get a finger pulse
oximeter (they are cheap now) and check out how the system works at 15,000.

This is the ultimate example of pussyfication!

Your the type of dispicable character who asks his/her doctor for
"sugar pills" to make them feel normal!

Get on board the plane, sit down, buckle up, shut up!

"Oh but help me doctor, i'm weak doctor, I'm incapable. I also need
food stamps and I need a volunteer to deliver that food to my house
and to also put them away in the cupboards for me..." PUSSY!
