MEDEVAC operators are asking about the use of skid shoes on approved rescue baskets and litters. After reviewing the details and drawings of the skid shoes,
the Aviation Engineering Directorate (AED) concluded that no AED approval is required for their use.
Use of skid shoes should extend the service life of the equipment while also protecting the aircraft floor from damage.
Skid shoe product information and pricing are available through Lifesaving Systems Corporation. Contact a rep at (813) 645-2748 or online:
