Livestock trailers can be quickly modified to make perfect Helikite trailers. They are tough, lightweight, furnished with smooth interiors, and are designed to go off-road when required. In comparison, normal blimp aerostat trailers are expensively custom-made and are long and unweildy. Whereas our inexpensive Helikite trailers are short, easy to reverse and can be pulled at speed by normal cars or 4-wheel drive vehicles. These Helikite trailers are perfect for photographers, police or military use.
A standard Helikite trailer has room inside for a fully inflated Helikite up to 5 cubic metres in size. Helikite winches can be attached to the inside, or outside of the trailer, and can also be deployed on steel posts away from the trailer. This handy trailer allows a 5 cubic metre Helikite with a gyro-stabilised video camera to be deployed to hundreds of feet altitude, in winds from 0 to 40 mph - within a few seconds. The first truly tactical aerostat.
Allsopp Helikites Ltd can also provide larger trailers such as this rapid-reaction trailer with a winch and Helikite storage inside and an inflating Helibase on its roof.
