The VS17 Signal Panel, or Signal Panel Marker, is often laid out on the ground to identify troop positions to friendly aircraft, or to identify where help is needed. A conspicuity panel like this one is required equipment during small aircraft flights into Canada because it is a good form of daytime signaling when search aircraft are in use.
The VS-17 Panel Marker comes equipped with tie downs for attachment to just about anything and snaps so that multiple signal panels can be joined together. The VS-17 Signal Panel Marker has both a high visibility pink side and a high visibility orange side and is perfect for identifying persons in distress to search teams and aircraft. The VS-17/GVX are tough fabric signal panels that won’t be torn up from wind like many of the other lighter duty panels.
This VS17 Signal Panel Marker measures approximately 20"x 72 and is designed to be connected to other panels for greater conspicuity. Also known as a conspicuity panel, the VS17 Marker Panel is an essential piece of heavy-duty survival gear.
