John Wayne/Orange County airport, California-based rotary operator HeliStream has purchased a Boost HEC system from Boost Systems, a specialist in fully certified human external cargo systems (HEC), personnel carrying device systems (PCDS) and related training services.
“Working with Boost to equip our fleet with the safest HEC systems in the industry was an easy decision,” says director of operations Rod Anderson. “We are proud that the name HeliStream is synonymous with superior service and safety. Most importantly, we appreciate the many friends and relationships we’ve formed along the way. We have the same values and are proud of the relationship we have built with Boost.”
Boost vice president of operations Jeff Yarnold adds: “This is the third Boost HEC system that HeliStream will be operating on its Bell mediums. It is just completing the installation on the first Bell 412EPX to be used in the US utility industry.”
Boost Systems offers a complete line of TCCA, FAA, CAAC, ANAC and EASA certified HEC systems for a wide range of helicopter models and fully compliant accessories, including HEC dual hook systems, approved PCDS and Boost Systems’ Generation II HEC suspension lines, said to be the most advanced suspension lines available. Boost Systems also provides training for HEC operations.
