Your Project – Our Experience.

Helicopter sling loads:

Helicopter sling load operations are an efficient means of moving and positioning large, heavy items, e.g. mining machinery or building elements,  in areas where surface accessibility presents a challenge. It is not uncommon for helicopters, suitably equipped with a cargo hook, to lift, move and reposition items externally for operational convenience and safety reasons.  ROTORS has extensive experience in external sling load operations, particularly in executing support contracts power line, construction, mining in remote locations.

Highest standards of safety:

To ensure the highest standards of safety, external sling load operations undertaken by ROTORS are carefully managed in accordance with our internal Safety Management System and Quality Control System.  Moving loads via an external helicopter sling is a highly specialized task necessitating comprehensive risk assessment and mitigation measures to prevent accidents. ROTORS pilots and all crew members operate according to strict standard safety procedures at all times.

Ground crew:

Well-briefed ground crew at both the pick-up and drop-off points is crucial to the safe execution of a helicopter swing load operation. We ensure that each member of the team has an in-depth understanding of:

  • Marshalling signals – in order to communicate with the pilot and other crew members in a noisy environment.
  • The hook and its release mechanism.
  • The performance and manoeuvering capability of the helicopter within the operating area.
  • The effect of the wind and weather conditions on the helicopter and load.

Helicopter sling loads training and inspections:

ROTORS ensures a high standard of training, and re-current training is maintained for all pilots and crew members.  In addition, our lifting equipment is thoroughly inspected and re-certified as required to ensure its suitability and reliability for the task at hand.

Helicopter type for sling load operations:

A flexible fleet of helicopters with the support of modern ground vehicles, tanks and special tool collections, can meet the requirements of our customer, for fast performance of any type of air transport, with the ability to lift external loads, directly from 100 kg to 1.400 kg Helicopter Airbus Η125 (AS350B3+  &  AS350B3e) and by agreement up to 1.400 kg MSL.

Authorisation (SPOHR):

Authorisation of High Risk Commercial Specialised Operations ENAC-IT.SPOHR.0031.


Ensure the highest standards of safety, quality and ethics in every organisational and operational process we undertake.
