MD600N Talon Keeperless Cargo Hook Kit

HeliAir Sweden’s MD600N helicopter as filmed on a live sling-load mission over Stockholm city using an Onboard cargo hook. The MD600's NOTAR system makes it extremely quiet when operating in urban settings.


Onboard's cargo hook kit for the MD600N helicopter is available for factory installation on new MD600N aircraft, or it can be purchased to upgrade a legacy system with all the safety innovations and design improvements the Onboard kit offers. The cargo hook kit includes a TALON LC Keeperless Cargo Hook, a manual and electrical release cable, and an optional Onboard Weighing System.

Mount Point for the MD600 (P/N 200-231-03)

The TALON® LC Keeperless Cargo Hook is designed to handle a wide variety of load ring sizes and styles, and eliminates the possibility of losing a load that inadvertently gets past the keeper. In addition, all Onboard hooks are designed to release 2.5 times rated load. In an emergency situation, such as a long line snag, Onboard hooks give pilots a significant margin of safety in which to release the cargo load.

If you have an MD600N helicopter that has not been previously equipped with a hook, a cargo hook attach point kit is also available. The attach point has an integrated spacer block and built-in travel limits to keep the hook from striking the airframe and to relieve strain on the hook control cables. It mounts directly on the aircraft fuselage with four mounting bolts included in the kit.
