Heliskid

Use the water wherever you want

Heliskid is an all-new maneuvering tool combined for helicopters used for forest fire work. It is a compact and versatile skid unit that can be transported by ground or air for easier direct attack water line maneuvers in remote areas that cannot be accessed with today’s extinguishing systems using trucks or pick-ups with standard kits.

Purpose

The Heliskid can be helitransported to remote areas pick up trucks can’t go so a tank can be located in a strategic point for extinguishing work. The purpose is to quickly deploy the structure/deposit wherever needed to be filled with water from a helicopter in inaccessible areas and pressure-feed the water from the tank through the fire pump and hoses.

Components

The Heliskid is comprised of a light aluminum structure that is capable of bearing the load of up to 3000L of water. It features 4 telescopic legs to support the Heliskid on the ground when full without affecting the pick up vehicle. It has a fold-down canvas tank with a capacity for 3000 liters and a 4-phase fire pump with a four-stroke engine and independent fuel tank. In addition, it includes 3-4 hose-carrying packs to create a total of 240 - 320 meters of hose.
