How our capabilities assisted Careflight

Assisted Careflight

The team at Queensland Gasket were contacted by Careflight with an urgent problem. They needed to reduce the ballast weight on one of their helicopters from 34 kgs to 22 kgs to improve its flight efficiency and ability.

Our technical experts consulted with Careflight and calculated the weight and dimension that needed to be removed from the helicopter ballast.

Adhering to tight timeframes, we used our water jet cutting machine to cut sections out of the ballast. This lightened the weight of the ballast considerably and the tie-down points that were also cut into the material also ensured it met certification requirements.
