Eagle 1


The Eagle 1 is a modified hospital hoist for use with Eagle slings.

It is designed for transferring PRMs from their wheelchair to an airport wheelchair soon after they have checked in. This gives handling staff sufficient time to take the passenger’s wheelchair down for loading (if required).

The passenger (with sling) is then wheeled to the bottom of the aerobridge (jetway) ready for the Eagle 2 or 3 transfer to their aircraft seat.
