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.
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.
