Helicopter handling systems

Upon landing on the helideck of a ship or a platform, most helicopters attach themselves automatically to a grid in the landing deck. A Helicopter Handling System is subsequently used to move the helicopter in a controlled and safe way into its hangar and from the hangar back to the take-off position. For this type of handling of the helicopter a number of different systems and methods are in existence, ranging from winch-and-rope systems to fully automated transfer systems.
