Single Hand Latching Device for rear Clamshell Doors BK117 C2/D2
With the EASA approved Single Hand Latching Device ADAC Luftfahrt Technik GmbH sets new standards in regard to the simple and fast locking of all BK117 C2/D2 rear doors.
Further to the gradual incorporation into the helicopters of ADAC's own air rescue fleet, numerous European HEMS operators have already profited from the simple and very ergonomic rear door lock.
This construction, redundantly secured against unintentional opening during flight, is easily operated with one hand so that both locks are swiftly and safely closed and locked. This significantly facilitates the rescue crew's heavy workload and ensures the patient's speedy transfer into the helicopter as well as safe and speedy discharge at the hospital.
Both in VIP aviation or with missions of police or special forces the Single Hand Latching Device ensures safe and comfortable loading and unloading of freight/luggage as well as faster boarding and alighting of persons.
In principle it is possible to develop the Single Hand Latching Device further in a way that enables special forces to open the lock from inside in order to swiftly alight from the helicopter at the site of the operation.
