Boost Human External Cargo Systems, which supplies Human External Cargo Systems, Personnel Carrying Device Systems (PCDS), and related Training Services, is pleased to announce the BOOST Personnel Carrying Device System for Transport Category Rotorcraft recently received Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval.

HEC operators are now able to meet HEC requirements when using a Dual Hook System on Bell 205, 212, 412 and Airbus H145 by adding the TCCA-certified BOOST Systems’ PCDS.

Jeff Yarnold, Boost’s Vice President of Operations, explains, “This STC covers everything below the HEC hook; the Y-Rope Lanyard, Suspension Line, Rigging Plate and Personnel Carrying Device System. Not only do we supply this system with the certified BOOST HEC Systems, but this STC also covers using our PCDSs with other manufacturers’ dual hook systems for the Bell 205, 212, 412 and Airbus H145. The FAA approval is pending, and we continue to work on additional certifications to provide more fully approved solutions.”
