Onboard Systems suspension system is approved by Eurocopter

Onboard Systems International announced that
its TALON LC cargo hook suspension system has been approved under Eurocopter’s
type certificate for the EC145 aircraft. The new suspension system will allow
the EC145 to lift external loads of up to 1,500 kgs.

“The system was recently selected for
factory installation by Eurocopter for a variety of reasons, including its
lower weight, the safety advantages of the TALON LC Keeperless cargo hook, and
the high-quality support we offer to customers,” said Karsten Lemmon, vice
president, sales and marketing of Onboard Systems. “We know that many
customers have been asking for this system, and we are pleased to be working
with Eurocopter to offer this product as a factory-install option.”
