Helicopter Compact Rescue Basket, by Lifesaving Systems Corp. (LSC)

LSC’s Compact Rescue Basket is standard equipment aboard all US Coast Guard rescue helicopters, and in service with numerous international military & civilian operators. The revised design incorporates cast lifting eyes and lifetime tubular hinges eliminate cable maintenance and inspection requirements. The frame opening has been enlarged to better accommodate two adults without increasing the overall dimensions, and an integrated, yet flexible stainless steel bail retainer has been added to keep the bails from dropping after removing the hoist hook. The frame of the Basket is constructed of tubular stainless steel for low maintenance & the bail assembly folds into the basket for compact stowage. Bottom is enclosed with a plastic mesh liner with 1″ openings. Basket provides excellent flotation performance and is self-righting with 100% reserve buoyancy. Float covers have reflective markings and are printed with safety pictorials.

*Oversized Item. Additional Shipping will be added to the total of the order.
