These Safety First ergonomic maintenance stands are custom-designed for the US Army’s UH-60. They are uniquely developed to fit and function in the tight-spaced hangar layout of the Yuma facility.
The Safety First ergonomic stands allow technicians SAFE access to all areas of their UH-60 aircraft. The stands are equipped with the latest features including a seamless fit to the aircraft with access to the main rotor, engine, transmission, flight controls, tail boom, drive shafts and tail rotor. The aircraft-specific design of the stands increases safety and efficiency. SAFE has been working alongside the US military in various locations to provide these innovative designs that are custom designed for both aircraft and location including the US Army National Guard UH-60 and the US Coast Guard MH-60.
Equipment fits the Army’s unique challenges
“We are proud to supply the US Army with more UH-60 maintenance support equipment that fit their unique challenges,” said Johnny Buscema, SAFE CEO. “There are no other stands on the market as effective and efficient as our custom designs. This support equipment is designed to provide personnel with safe and efficient access for all maintenance. We have provided similar custom support equipment for a wide range of helicopters and airplanes in both the civilian and military sector.”
