Aircraft Lifts

Doing the job! Lifting 70 tons.

Operationally capable and mission-critical

The large area lift platforms on the Queen Elizabeth Class can accomodate a Chinook helicopter with rotor blades extended. Alternatively, two F-35B aircraft can be lifted together - a 70 ton load.

Multiple Aircraft

The MacTaggart Scott aircraft elevators for the Royal Navy's Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers were designed to lift two joint strike fighters (F-35B aircraft) from the hangar deck to the flight deck. The lift platforms also accommodate a Chinook helicopter.

Chain Drive

The MacTaggart Scott aircraft elevators on HMS Ocean are fit for HM The Queen. The chain drive ensures a smooth journey and the platform stops level with the deck.

Safety Systems

The chain drive systems have dual-redundant, fail-safe braking systems which are activated automatically at standstill, on over-speed, when an emergency push button is pressed or when there is a power failure.
