AS350/355 Series Fast Rope
The TSOP Fast-Rope Unit is designed to work in conjunction with the platforms and allows personnel deployment when it is impossible to land the helicopter. The Fast-Rope Unit provides an overhead hook assembly that allows an easy transition from the helicopter to either fast-rope or rappel. The hook is designed with a cable release to jettison the ropes once personnel are on the ground. This provides a “safe & clean” departure for the helicopter (no ropes attached).
