BREEZE-EASTERN BRINGS LIGHT STANDARDIZATION TO LIFT


Breeze-Eastern makes the rescue hoists, winches, and cargo hooks found on many civilian and military helicopters today. In the area of new products, the company has come out with Lighted Hook Bumpers to make it easier for helicopter crews to see and manage rescue hooks. Breeze Eastern’s standardized Lift Bag Kit (LBK) can be used to calibrate hoists and train hoist operators.


The Lighted Hook Bumper, which is located above a rescue hook on the hoist cable, enables hoist operators, helicopter pilots, and surface rescuers to know where the hook is at all times. The bumper’s lighting system is made up of 14 LEDs located in upward and downward facing rings that allow the bumper to be seen from as far away as 656 feet/200 meters. Operators can configure the LEDs’ colors, patterns, and light intensities, making each bumper easy to identify from a distance even in foggy skies and murky water.


“This product was developed based on customer feedback,” said James DeCuollo, Breeze-Eastern’s account manager. “It is easy to install and maintain because the bumper’s batteries are commercially available.”


The LBK is a hoistable orange flexible container that can be loaded with 25-pound weighted bags that are supplied. As the bags can be empty or filled, the container can be as light as 75 pounds or as heavy as 600 pounds. The LBK allows crews to conduct flight testing, maintenance/conditioning, and training activities without attaching a person to the end of the line. The flexible container has a storage pocket for a hand scale and an electrostatic discharge cable. “The LBK’s 600-pound load is rated for a rescue hoist,” said DeCuollo. “The reason this is so critical, is in order to ensure the safety of the hoist, you do have to do test flights and test lifts. Using the LDK is the way to standardize those tests across your fleet.”


Meanwhile in the lab, Breeze-Eastern is updating its AC- and DC-powered rescue hoists. These include installing longer lasting brushless motors on its DC-powered models.
