To improve its Sling Rating training and provide students with realistic scenarios, Heli-Hire has purchased a remote controlled grapple.
It is light enough to be used by either of the two R22 training helicopters, and hones student ability to work with a sling load.
This set of skills is very unique with real scenarios played out. We have students lifting fence post to simulated heli logging along with precision placement i.e putting the post into holes in the ground.
This piece of equipment is invaluable for students wishing to get into longline work.
