Is there anybody with experience regarding slingloading with an EC-130?
And also in precision positioning of the load?
Would like to hear there thoughts about it, and the pro's and con's and advise.

I think something is being lost in translation. Sling loading is done with helicopters, carrying cargo from place to place at the end of a long cable. Are you asking about low altitude extraction? That's when the cargo goes out the rear door while the plane makes a low pass. Saves on landing fees.

I suppose depending on your geographic location the an ec-130 is either a helicopter or a cargo plane. (ec is eurocopter)

It concerns the Eurocopter EC-130 not the plane :rolleyes:
