MISSION

We thrive at creating and offering solutions that improve personnel autonomy, comfort and pleasure while ensuring safety and efficiency. We care about the people comprising the helicopter community and cherish establishing personalized contacts & dedicating ourselves to service. Our aim is to continuously provide well made, reliable and readily available products to our friendly customers worldwide.

About US

Helitowcart is a helicopter hangaring solution specialist. We focus on two helicopter handling concepts: towing and carrying. We are known for offering multiple models and thus can meet needs particular to most operators. There are well over 1200 Helitowcart units operated worldwide and this number is continuously growing.

We started manufacturing small devices for the Robinson market but have since substantially widened our product list to service the majority of light to medium helicopter types in the world. Most customers require that we cater to their Airbus, Bell, Robinson or Enstrom helicopters but we have designed our products to be compatible with MDs, Schweizers, Sikorsky and Agustas/Leonardo as well.

We are the right match to operators looking for:

  • More traction & power to meet challenges posed by tough weather and terrain,

  • Hassle Free machine positioning & quick attachment,

  • Equipment versatility to as many helicopter types as possible,

  • Confidence in a brand with a proven reliability record,

  • Attentive, dedicated and efficient long term customer support.

Helitowcart is also a provider of practical accessories for helicopters. This second activity is also a steadily growing part of our business.

All products in that category have been introduced following requests and suggestions submitted by our friends from the helicopter community. These individuals had been facing somewhat irritating situations pertaining to availability, affordability or practicality in their daily operations and have turned to us to create products to fill these gaps.

This is what has lead us to create our own products such as sturdier higher lifting wheels, pocket free streamlined bearpaws and seat cushions offering better long haul body support for crews. We also have been distributing products brilliantly created and manufactured by partners such as sturdy tool free quick connect Cargo Baskets and retractable Tow Bars that can be carried into helicopters to remote bases.

The accessories we offer have one characteristic in common: they serve the purpose of improving pilots and mechanic’s quality of life at work by adding swiftness & ease to their daily tasks; one well-thought accessory at a time.

Helitowcart is blessed with an impressive web of satisfied customers and highly regarded friends from the helicopter community. This business endeavour has been a decade of brilliantly rewarding experiences, and we are now thrilled to dive into our second decade expecting the pleasures of initiating new projects, generating more brilliant solutions, and enjoying sharing them with an enthusiastic helicopter community. Join us!
