HEC Y-Ropes

Y-Rope for Airbus EC135 Dual Cargo Hook Kit

Product Number: 490-022-00

Call to confirm availability

The Y-rope is required when conducting human external cargo (HEC) missions using our Airbus EC135 Replacement Dual Cargo Hook Kit. It provides a controlled interface between the two cargo hooks and the longline. For the components below the Y-rope (carabiner to lanyard), Onboard offers an optional HEC longline package. Alternative configurations or components may also be approved for use through your local Aviation Authority.

  • Stong & Lightweight Material:Y-Rope is fabricated with super-strong, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fiber, which offers maximum strength with minimum weight.10:1 Design Factor for all Human External Cargo (HEC) Lines.
  • Color-Coordinated for Accurate Installation:Y-rope lines are color-coded and imprinted with block-lettered identifying text to ensure correct installation every time.
  • 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.
