FB Heliservices Ltd.


The TLC Helilift has been used at RAF Shawbury since November 1999 on a fleet of 26 AS 350 helicopters, and is used daily to make up to 50 aircraft movements over distances of up to km in all weathers. The TLC Helilift has proved to be reliable and is a major asset that allows better utilisation of manpower and is a far more flexible means of helicopter ground handling than the traditional tractor and tow bar.

The TLC Helilift that we have at SARTU RAF Valley was first trialled on the Bell 412 EP here in 1999.  Before that time it had not transported such a heavy helicopter, and I must admit it has acquitted itself well.  We operate on a very large, exposed site directly on the coast and we regularly experience winds in excess of 50 knots, with rain to match.  Nevertheless, and even when transporting our Bell 412s in winds in excess of 60 knots abeam the aircraft, the TLC Helilift has proved itself trustworthy and solid.  It holds the airframe in a strong lateral position relative to the ground and is virtually unshakeable as it flexes to take the strain of external forces such as the weather and uneven surfaces.
