Helicopter Rescue Equipment
ICAR strongly recommends to equip any helicopter dedicated to air rescue with a:
a. RESCUEHOIST (min.2 person load), and/or
b. DOUBLE ATTACHMENT POINT SYSTEM for HEC fixed line operations.
The pilot has the final word in approving the on-board equipment he decides to operate.
The pilot and the on-board rescuer (chief, leader) should collaborate to determine tactics and/or techniques to be used.
