V1060 series - HeliCarrier for Wheeled Helicopters

Product Information

The HeliCarrier V1060 series device was created to tow helicopters equipped with wheeled undercarriage. These machines are designed to handle helicopters by lifting and carrying the helicopter nose wheel.

The V1060s are an addition to the powerful V1000 Heli-Carrier series. The units offer great flexibility as they can perform tight radius turns for precise helicopter positioning.

Aiming for versatility, these carriers can serve more than 35 helicopter types (see compatibility page) as well as planes such as the King Air and light jets.

Attachment types

We determine the appropriate attachment strap or hook according to the helicopter types for each fleet. For Twin Nose Wheels we usually supply straps (included with carrier), but we can also add a Strap Hook if desired. For Single Nose Wheels we add a Tow Bar Type Hook specific to helicopter.

For specific needs we are open to develop custom adapters for attachment and/or bucket configurations. Contact us.
