V-22 Osprey Rescue Hoist

The V-22 Osprey is considered to be the most flexible, capable and revolutionary combat troop transport aircraft in the world. The V-22 can take off and land like a helicopter and convert to a turboprop aircraft while in flight.

Among the features of the V-22 Osprey is a state of the art Rescue Hoist system for lowering and raising troops from difficult situations. A highly engineered S.S. White Flexible Shaft drives the Power Sheave Assembly in the Hoist Boom.
