Figure 4. Rigging Shackle Assembly
Failure to arrange sling eyes on the sling link assembly
as shown in Figure 1, View F, will create an unbalanced
load on the sling link assembly and may cause the
assembly to open as tension is applied to the slings.
Connect the single eye end of heavy weight black/white sling (18), Figure 1, View A, to the double eye end of
heavy weight black/white sling (19) with bridle loops using sling link (20).
(1) Verify that the arrangement of sling eyes is as shown in View F, with double eye end of sling (19) in
the Position A orientation.
(2) Extend sling (19) out away from the damaged helicopter for easy access during the recovery
helicopter hook-up procedure covered in Paragraph 9 of this WP.
The damaged helicopter is now ready for hookup to the recovery helicopter.
