Fast roping, rappelling and human external cargo device.

Documents, Manuals

The BRD01 is our cabin mounted device for fast roping and rappelling on Bell helicopters. It is approved (EASA STC) for Bell 212 and 412 helicopters as well as for the Agusta-Bell variants. The device also fits most military helicopters (UH-1 variants) and may be used with these helicopters on the basis of national military approvals.

In combination with the LifeLine or Varioline load attachment devices (also covered by the STC), the BRD01 can be turned into an efficient external load system capable of supporting 2x 400kg HEC or NHEC loads per helicopter.

The BRD01 is fixed to the helicopter via four cabin hardpoints normally used for internal rescue hoists or additional seating struts. It incorporates a retraction mechanism allowing it to be moved through the sliding door to a point where the main coupling vertical comes clear of the landing skid (fast roping position)

The BRD01 device exists in a RH and LH version and two coupling variants (purely mechanical or with pyroelectric emergency release option for the pilot) and requires no mechanical fixed provisions for installation.

Additional equipment (harnesses, connectors etc.) usable with the BRD01 is included in the certified HRS01 package
