A recreation of the development of the flight helmet that features a digital display, which transformed Elbit Systems along with the world of modern flight. Exclusive (Photo: Ofer Zidon) When Yaron Krantz retired from regular services as an IAF fighter pilot in 1990, he never thought he will play a part in a revolution, in the context of which most of the world's fighter pilots would convert to flying with their flight data displayed on a visor that constitutes an integral part of their helmet. The tremendous success of the flight helmet transformed Elbit Systems and not just the world of flight. It turned Elbit from a medium technological enterprise by Israeli standards into a major corporation in the global defense industry. Along the way, Elbit Systems acquired quite a few other companies and incorporated them in its operations. Krantz, along with former Elbit CEO Yossi Ackerman, recreated the story of the Elbit flight helmet for the first time in this interview. Krantz, an engineer and computer specialist with an additional degree in business administration speaks about the future helmet, to be used by the pilots of the F-35 future fighter and how it differs from the existing models.
