Rescue Basket

Our rescue basket combines the compact stowage of a rescue net system with the ruggedness, rigidity and safety of a tubular frame rescue basket. The design reduces stowage space making it ideal for use by operators of smaller helicopters for SAR operations.

Design features a large open internal volume, able to accommodate two-person recovery in a single hoist-sling evolution, reducing the time at scene and in hover. Bail assemblies fold into the basket and each side collapses for stowage. Basket is easily deployed by simply lifting the bails and top rail up, rotating the side supports down, and securing in place with simple spring-locks. This provides a rigid structure that aids handling and entry into the basket. All components are corrosion resistant, and require minimal maintenance for extended service life.
