Ever-Expanding Line of Helicopter Mission Equipment

60 Years of Excellence

Now entering our 60th year of business, generations of operators have expanded their fleet utilization with our well designed, high-quality, and easily maintained equipment. Simplex designs and manufactures a range of helicopter systems and accessories for fire fighting, agricultural spraying, and oil spill response, all of it backed by unparalleled customer support available around the clock and around the world. The breadth and depth of our product line is unmatched.


Power Line (New!)

Simplex is proud to introduce a new line of helicopter airborne power line maintenance and construction products, including maintenance platforms, insulator washing equipment and side-pulling cargo hooks for the Eurocopter AS350/355 and, soon, for Bell 206B and the MD 500 Series helicopters. This equipment was designed and built in cooperation with an Australian operator/manufacturer.

Fire Fighting

The lightweight and aerodynamic Simplex Fire Attack systems enable operators to quickly convert their helicopters into rapid-response firefighting machines. Tanks may be filled on the ground, or with hover refill systems, and fill rates range from 300 to 3000 gallons per minute. Tanks are available for helicopters from Agusta, Bell, Eurocopter, Kamov, Kazan, and the S-64/CH-54 Skycrane helicopters.

Agricultural Spray

Lightweight Simplex tanks are durable, resistant to chemicals and easy to install and remove. Many models offer the option of hydraulic or electric drives. Agricultural spray systems are available for Eurocopter, Hiller, Bell, Schweizer, MDHI, Kamov, and Kazan helicopters.

Oil Spill

Available for any cargo-hook-equipped helicopter, Simplex's in-situ oil spill Heli-Torch or dispersant application equipment may be quickly deployed, with no transport time required.
