Towbarless tractor for helicopters
Designed and manufactured by TLC Handling Ltd the TLC Helilift is a unique answer to all ground-handling problems faced by operators of skid-mounted helicopters. With its revolutionary and patented design the TLC Helilift has the capability and versatility to handle almost any make or model of skid mounted helicopter without the need for reconfiguration.
The flexibility and versatility of the TLC Helilift presents helicopter operators with much more choice. In particular the choice to quickly and easily transport the helicopter in and out of the hangar as and when necessary eliminating the need to leave it outside to the mercy of the elements. Unlike other ground-handling systems that can take too long to attach and detach and/or require too many people to operate them the TLC Helilift offers fast hitch/unhitch and requires only one operator. The resulting benefit is a reduction in the helicopter’s annual maintenance costs.
The advantages of the helicopter as an integral if not vital part of organisations such as the police and other emergency services has been recognised worldwide and airborne policing has become a proven and successful aspect of law enforcement. Response times are crucial to the success of these operations and an increasing number of these vital organisations are finding that the TLC Helilift serves only to enhance their role and that of the helicopter.
