Helicopter slings supply
Glomex MS supplied helicopter textile slings to the Army of the Czech Republic this February. The delivery comprised a total of three sets of Helicopter Under-Slung Load Equipment (HUSLE) Slings. The slings are designed to secure cargo slung under the Mi-17 and Mi-171Š military helicopters home based at Namest nad Oslavou and Praha-Kbely airbases that are frequently deployed abroad.
In May 2019, the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic declared Glomex MS as winner of the open tender. Our success was mainly due to the proven quality of AmSafe products which are utilized by most of the NATO nations, as well as the favorable price we were able to offer. The slings undergone a week lasting military testing and acquired airworthiness certification from the Czech Republic Military Aviation Authority. AmSafe representatives came from Great Britain and provided a two-day training course for operating staff at Náměšť Airbase to familiarize future users with the correct operation and maintenance of the products. This delivery, worth CZK 2.6 million, is another meaningful business success for our company.
