- Complete Dual-Hook Solution:Comes with 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.
- STC Certified for HEC Missions:This cargo hook system meets the 14 CFR part 27 certification requirements for Human External Cargo (HEC).
- Combined Dual Master Cylinder:User-friendly dual master cylinder combines the backup hydraulic release for both hooks along with the electrical release for the secondary hook into a single unit.
- HEC Longline Options:Choose one of our HEC longlines, or use a longline approved by the local aviation authority.
- NHEC Load Options:With the Y-rope 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 load limit is 2,000 lb. (907 kg).
- TALON® LC Hydraulic Hook:Our hydraulic hook greatly increases load security by using a hydraulically activated release mechanism instead of a traditional manual release cable.
