Here's one approach:

Create a mesh circle with 8 points in the side view:

enter image description here

Scale it to get the profile you want:

enter image description here

Delete all but the bottom corner of it:

enter image description here

Go to the top view and make an 8 point cylinder and align it with the circle from the side view:

enter image description here

Then go back to the side view and scale it so that it matches your quarter circle mesh:

enter image description here

Subdivide the vertical edges and then drag the points to the right and down to match your profile:

enter image description here

Go to the top view and delete the edges on the left half:

enter image description here

Delete the back faces:

enter image description here

Select the vertices in the back and snap them even with the right side:

enter image description here

Add a Mirror modifier:

enter image description here

Grab the middle vertices and pull them downwards:

enter image description here

Select the edges to the right of the middle:

enter image description here

Subdivide them:

enter image description here

Select the new edge and do Edge Slide to move them right up next to the middle edge:

enter image description here

Add a Subdivision modifier, and you can see we've got that pointed crease in the middle:

enter image description here

If you then go to the front view and pull up the middle verts a bit:

enter image description here

Then go to the side and delete these faces:

enter image description here

Select the upper row of edges:

enter image description here

Subdivide:

enter image description here

Select the new edge and Edge Slide it up near the top edge:

enter image description here

And that's got you pretty far along on the top visor already:

enter image description here

You can do the bottom similarly, but it's almost straight, so you wouldn't need as many edges. Just make another cylinder in top view, cut it in half, mirror it, and move the edges where you want them.

enter image description here

enter image description here

I hope that's enough to get you going. Sorry if it's too much detail as I don't know your modeling skill level. Good luck!
