Robinson Helicopter has received Transport Canada approval for its R66 cargo hook installation.

The optional cargo hook can carry an external load of up to 1200lb, increasing the R66 aircraft’s maximum gross weight from 2700lbs to 2900lbs for external load operations.

The cargo hook installation allows for solo flight from either seat, with a left-seat hydraulic switch and a left-seat start button. A load weight gauge and a second set of engine power gauges are located in the left door sill allowing the pilot to monitor engine operations while keeping an eye on the external load. Provisions for remote control of external equipment such as long line hook or a water dropping bucket are also included.
