Onboard's Sling Suspension System kit installs using a single point mount and offers these advantages in setting up your EC130 for external load work:

  • Low Weight — Kit components weigh just 12 LB
    (10 KG), but can safely lift loads weighing up to
    1,660 LB (750 KG).
  • Low Profile — Designed to mount to the single hard point on the belly of the aircraft to provide maximum ground clearance.
  • Easy Routing — Cable routing interfaces closely alongside the hook and is routed through one point on the bumper ring

It comes with our TALON® LC Hydraulic Hook, which greatly increases load security by using a hydraulically activated release mechanism instead of a traditional manual release cable. It also includes an integrated Onboard Weighing System to reduce the risk of overload stress and aid pilots with loading decisions.

To further improve safety, our system also includes a built-in polymer bumper ring with travel limits. The bumper ring keeps the hook and control cables from impacting the airframe and causing damage that could lead to an inadvertent load release.

This kit includes options for both the fixed and removable provisions and is approved for installation on the Eurocopter EC130 B4 model helicopter.
