HEC Kits for the Bell 206L & 407
Onboard Systems has developed Human External Cargo (HEC) dual hook kits for the Bell 206L and Bell 407 aircraft. These kits have been STC certified for a variety of CFR Part 133 external load missions, incluidng HEC, including high-value cargo transport, utility line work, short haul, and search & rescue.
- STC Certified Solution: Our dual cargo hook kits have been fully certified to meet the requirements of 14 CFR 27.865 for Human External Cargo (HEC).
- Dual TALON® LC Hydraulic Hooks: Our hydraulic hooks greatly increase load security by using a hydraulically activated release mechanism instead of a traditional manual release cable.
- NHEC Load Options: With the Y-rope (P/N 490-019-00) attached to both cargo hooks, the dual cargo hook system load limit is 800 lb. (363 kg) for both HEC and non-HEC (NHEC) missions. When an NHEC load is attached to only the primary cargo hook, the normal aircraft load limit applies.
The Bell 206L Dual Cargo Hook Kit (P/N 200-465-00) includes everything you'll need to upgrade your aircraft to a dual cargo hook system, including primary and secondary cargo hooks, attach point fittings, master and slave cylinders, external electrical release harnesses, and hardware. For the Bell 407 aircraft, we offer two Dual Cargo Hook Kits: one configured for left-seat operations (P/N 200-456-00) and one configured for right-seat operations (P/N 200-456-01).
Our longline kits for HEC missions include many essential components for properly rigging your aircraft to carry human external cargo, including the Y-Rope, a rigging plate, longlines, weight bags, lanyards, and carabiners.
