Boost Systems, a provider of fully certified human external cargo (HEC) systems, personal carrying device systems and related training services is promoting its European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) supplemental type certificate (STC) for its Airbus H125 human external cargo system at EUROPEAN ROTORS 2023 in Madrid, Spain.
This week, BOOST also announced its collaboration with AirWork & Heliseilerei GmbH (A&H) (CH) for the development and certification of a complex personnel carrying device system (PCDS) to be used with the BOOST HEC system for the Airbus H125/AS350.
“Providing a complete solution is paramount. We want all HEC operators to have access to modern and certified HEC equipment, including personal carrying device systems (PCDS). Working closely with AirWork allows us to offer a PCDS designed specifically for our Airbus H125/AS350 HEC System here in Europe,” said Derek Thomas, BOOST Systems president.
The BOOST AS350/355/H125 HEC System has a carrying capacity of 1,100 pounds / 500 kilograms, which allows for multi-person rescue. The provisions kit installs quickly and easily. Once installed, the mission kit (dual hook and load beam) is installed and removed within minutes. The system comes complete with a durable case to store the mission equipment when not in use.
The AS350/355/H125 HEC System is also approved by Transport Canada Civil Aviation STC SH15-39 and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) STC SR03681NY. This system is recommended for use during CFR Part 133 external load missions including SAR, law enforcement and rescue HEC operations as well as cargo transport, utility line work including powerline maintenance and forestry operations.
