** Paravion is preparing to release an updated version of this popular kit which will increase the wheel size and will be manual operation eliminating hydraulics. The below kit is no longer available although Paravion will continue to support existing kits for as long as possible. Please contact us directly for more information. **
The Paravion® CGHW-100-3 kit is a pair of compact hydraulic ground handling wheels which easily stow in a small area of the baggage compartment or other storage area during flights and provide a solution for moving the helicopter if standard equipment is not available. They are quick and simple to use in the situation of an unplanned landing, weather forced landing at a remote airport, or landing at an airport with no helicopter ground handling equipment. They come in a rolling storage bag, are intended for use on smooth surfaces, and weigh only approximately 52 lbs compared to factory wheel options which can weigh nearly twice as much. These wheels also eliminate the dangers of over the center mechanical wheel designs because they are hydraulic.
They are currently available for the Bell 206L Series, Bell 407, Airbus AS350/H125, and Airbus AS355.
