Helicopter Winching

email print page

Coast Guard and Search and Rescue Organisations rely on the primary winch in the helicopter for many recovery and rescue operations. The compact lightweight design of the ActSafe ascender allows for it to be kept as a back up/auxillary winch for emergency recovery to be used when the primary winch fails.

Until this application was considered, the only option for the rescue team was to leave and request another helicopter. This extends the risk to the human lives involved, and increases the costs of the rescue operation considerably.

Several ActSafe distributors have successfully worked with local organisations in Scandinavia, Central Europe, Africa & South America to develop this procedure.
