Kahu recently purchased a surplus Sikorsky UH60 Black Hawk helicopter from the US Government surplus auction site known as GSA.gov Auctions.
Throughout the last 6 months I have personally researched the availability and specifications of all the aerial firefighting equipment applicable to the Black Hawk aircraft and throughout this process I had come across the Helitak designs and have been in constant discussions with team at Helitak. From the information I received it was pleasing to see that Helitak has addressed all the issues previously experienced by operators and I have decided that the Helitak FT4500 UH60 Fire Suppression tank is by far the best option for Kahu.
The Helitak design is certainly next generation and offers far greater useability than anything else on the market. The FT4500, unlike its rivals, requires no costly aircraft modifications, carries a larger payload than its competition and is still far more reasonably priced than others available.
The FT4500 is already making all the right sounds throughout the Black Hawk operators’ market and I cannot praise Helitak enough for the quality and innovative design of their FT4500 creation. Kahu looks forward to a long and profitable relationship with Helitak Fire Fighting Equipment.
