Helicopter external loads operations

These flights are performed with Mi-8 helicopters.


Аn external load is used when the freight is transported outside the helicopter, because it is not appropriate to be loaded on board and when the landing is impossible. 


Helicopter external loads operations are being performed most often when the topographic terrain is difficult of access.


External load helicopter flights are being performed with different means, e.g. by lifting with a rope, net or stand.
