Description

Helicopter type

+ Airbus Helicopters EC135 und EC145 (all versions) with standard landing gear
+ Can also be manufactured for other helicopters, as needed.

The Tow Bar must be used together with Ground Handlin Wheels mounted on the helicopter landing gear. The inclination of the main frame during towing has no influence on the landing gear (pivot bearings in both beams). The helicopter must be towed with a towing vehicle. Observe the procedure and safety instructions provided in the AMM. There are two coupling systems for the transportation of the ground handling wheels (EC135, EC145) with the empty Tow Bar. The Tow Bar can be used for landing gears of different widths 2000 mm, 2115 mm, 2300 mm, 2400 mm (standard, medium and high landing gear).

Our tow bar is compatible with these helicopter types: Bo 105, BK 117, EC135, EC145, EC145T2 H135, H145, H145M
