Fast roping, rappelling and human external cargo device

Documents, Manuals

The EAD01 is our standard device for fast roping and rappelling on the EC135 and EC145.

In combination with the LifeLine or Varioline load attachment devices, it can be turned into an efficient external load system capable of supporting 2x 270kg HEC or NHEC loads per helicopter.

The EAD01 is fixed to the helicopter hoist interfaces via quick release pins. Attachment is done using either lightweight fixed interfaces (IK135 sets for the EC135, hoist adapters for the EC145), or the retractable adapters of the RIA series. Whith these interfaces, the primary rope point can be brought out of the range of the landing skids, thus making fast roping operations much safer.

Additional equipment (harnesses, connectors etc.) usable with the EAD02 is included in the certified HRS01 package
