AMS Heli Design, LLC is proud to present a revolutionary concept for the helicopter shipping that will allow shipment of helicopters in standard 40ft containers with tailboom installed, providing incredible savings in shipping cost.
The device consists of a frame with a lifting device hydraulically operated and electrically controlled that can be used on several helicopter models.
Major advantages are:
The lifting device comes with a converter for 230/110V so it can be used internationally.
“When we had to deliver two AW119Kx EMS to South Africa, we conceived the idea and developed a mobile shipping platform with an integrated lifting device which allows shipping in a standard 40ft container with tailboom installed in order to save time and money. The outcome was impressive for the easy operational use and for the shipment itself that becomes much easier. Furthermore, time saving is massive and there are no disassembly/reassembly tools required” said Andrea Girolin, CEO of AMS Heli Design.
We do believe that this could be extremely important for OEMs, operators and shipping companies since use of this device can save hundreds of thousand of dollars and weeks of technician labor.
The AMS Heli Design Helicopter Transport System has Patent Pending.
