KUH-1 Sea Tray for Maritime Search and Rescue

KUH-1 Sea Tray for Maritime Search and Rescue

The Search and Rescue (SAR) operating environment provides a challenge for helicopter operators. Salt water and biological fluids are harsh and corrosive to aircraft structure. An over-water hoist retrieval can bring up to 7 litres of salt water onboard the helicopter. Unless the cabin floor is sealed and waterproof, the salt water and biological fluids can seem under the cabin floor and drastically increase maintenance requirements.

The Korean Aerospace Industries are designing the Korean Coast Guard variant of the KUH-1 Surion helicopter, the KCG-1. GVH Aerospace’s sea tray (also known as a wet deck) product was selected following a competitive process as the catalogue line-fit role equipment for the KUH-1. This was in recognition of the mature and extensive service history of the GVH Aerospace product, which has been supplied to many international helicopter operators for search and rescue missions. GVH Aerospace customised the sea tray product to the exacting requirements of the customer, delivering the product on time and within the customer’s budget.
