Onboard Systems Remote Hook Electrical Release Kit for the Robinson R44 Raven II Certified by FAA and Transport Canada
Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Onboard Systems announced that its new Remote Hook Electrical Release Kit for the Robinson R44 Raven II aircraft has been STC certified by the FAA and Transport Canada. Onboard has also submitted this kit to EASA for certification in Europe.
Onboard’s Remote Hook Electrical Release Kit gives your pilot the ability to release a load that’s attached to an Onboard Systems remote hook. The kit provides all of the fixed electrical provisions needed for pilot activation of a remote cargo hook, including a cyclic mounted release switch, circuit breaker, relay, wiring, and a standard electrical connector for attaching a longline connector.
“Many operators have told us that they’ve had to cobble together their own release switch for their remote hook, and then try to get it certified,” said Karsten Lemmon, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Onboard Systems. “Our new Remote Hook Electrical Release Kit provides a certified option that’s easy to buy and install.”
