US-based HeliWagon has appointed a distributor for Europe for their remote control helicopter dollies.Â British AS350B3 owner George Milford-Haven will represent HeliWagon across Europe and estimates that he can sell at least one per week.
A Eurocopter AS350B2 based just a few miles up the road from Duxford is featured on the HeliWagon displayed at Helitech.Â Unfortunately the area of barriers it has been put in is not really big enough to get the full effect of this very manoeuverable handling equipment.Â It is targeted at owners and operators and less so for maintenance organisations which really need helicopters on the hangar floor and not on a trolley/dolly.
Standard pricing without any options is quoted as US$24,750 for the 12×14 ft version, $26,625 for 14x14ft and $28,250 for the largest 16×14 ft version.Â Options include recessed lighting, diamond plating, side steps and custom logos.

Warning – if you buy two and want to get your helicopter out of the hangar, make sure you pick up the correct remote….Â We hear a story of an operator using a competitor product who made a costly mistake…
