Unique foldable Chinook CH-47 Out Of Area Ladders


Foldable Chinook CH-47 Out Of Area Ladders

A special design of a Chinook ladder was required to make it fit in the Chinook helicopter. Our engineering team designed a foldable lightweight and easy to manoeuvre ladder for OOA (Out Of Area) applications.
The Helicopter OOA Ladder is applicable to the Boeing CH47 Chinook type and is suitable for:

  • Window cleaning
  • Inspections and maintenance to the engine exhaust
  • Inspections and maintenance to the helicopter cabin entry

The Helicopter OOA Ladder inclination is approx. 70 degrees, which is foldable to ground surface level for OOA applications, and with that the ladder perfectly fits in the Chinook helicopter.
The ladder is height adjustable and is equipped with non-staining rubber protection padding to protect the aircraft skin.
