Canada-based Boost Human External Cargo Systems, a specialist in fully certified human external cargo systems, Personnel Carrying Device Systems (PCDS) and related training services, has received TCCA approval for its Boost personnel carrying device system for transport category rotorcraft.
HEC operators are now able to meet HEC requirements when using a dual hook system on Bell 205, 212, 412 and Airbus H145, by adding the TCCA certified Boost Systems’ PCDS.
Vice president of operations Jeff Yarnold says: “This STC covers everything below the HEC hook; the Y-rope lanyard, suspension line, rigging plate and personnel carrying device system. Not only do we supply this system with the certified Boost HEC systems, but this STC also covers using our PCDSs with other manufacturers’ dual hook systems for the Bell 205, 212, 412 and Airbus H145. The FAA approval is pending, and we continue to work on additional certifications to provide more fully approved solutions.”
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, which are the most advanced suspension lines available today. Boost Systems also provides training for HEC operations.
