View Manuals, Certifications, and Hardware Notes


  • Complete HEC System:Includes dual cargo hooks, a lightweight frame, and all fixed provisions and controls.
  • Dual Hydraulic Hooks:TALON® LC Hydraulic Hooks greatly increase load security by using a hydraulically activated release mechanism instead of a traditional manual release cable.
  • Backwards Compatible:Compatible with Bell fixed provisions and can also be installed on aircraft without any cargo hook provisions.
  • Dual Master Cylinder:Primary release via electrical push button on the collective, with backup release via hydraulic dual master cylinder installed on the collective. Will be compliant with both FAA and EASA requirements for preventing inadvertent release.
  • NHEC Load Option:With the Y-rope attached to both cargo hooks, the dual cargo hook system load limit is 1,323 lb. (600 kg). When an NHEC load is attached to only the primary cargo hook (i.e., without the Y-Rope), the normal aircraft load limit applies.
  • STC Certified for HEC Missions:This cargo hook system meets the 14 CFR part 27 certification requirements for Human External Cargo (HEC).
  • Multiple Configurations:Optional kit configurations include fixed and/or removable provisions, an Onboard Weighing System for the primary cargo hook, and a Personnel Carrying Device System (PCDS) including the Y-rope, rigging plate, and longline.
