Helitreck’s BK117 twin-engine helicopters are equipped with Breeze Eastern Series Rescue Hoists on the left hand side of the aircraft.
The variable speed winch is capable of lifting up to 272kg (600lb), which provides the option of single or double person lifts. The featured 75m (245ft) useable cable length enables access to and from extremely remote areas, with variable speeds up to 200ft/min.
The stainless steel hoist cable is complemented by a Lifesaving Systems Corp D-LOK Hook. This hook features a dual motion safety latching to prevent incidence of dynamic rollout.
