Helicopter Rescue Hoist Trainer

Needs

THE RESCUE HOIST TRAINING SYSTEM IS THE GREATEST SINGLE INVESTMENT FOR HELICOPTER RESCUE OPERATIONS PERFORMED UNDER DIFFICULT CONDITIONS.

Using helicopters with integrated hoisting systems will get a large growing business within the next years.

There are a lot of missions which have to be daily solved by aircrew from:

  • Coast Guards
  • Mountain Rescue Organisations
  • Police and Special Forces
  • Naval Forces
  • Army
  • Services for offshore industries especially for oil rigs and wind power plants
  • Most of these jobs have to be done within shortest time and personal stress combined with high risk as well as harsh weather conditions.
  • Operating winching systems at helicopters require a high degree of confidence and experience
