    Background: THE U.S. COAST GUARD HAS A NEW TYPE HELICOPTER FOR OFF-SHORE PATROLLING AND RESCUE WORK. IT CAN TAKE-OFF AND ALIGHTS ON WATER AS WELL AS ON LAND.

    TWO OF THEM ARE IN SERVICE AT THE COAST GUARD BASE NEAR NEW YORK. THEY ARE EQUIPPED WITH FOUR-FOOT-LONG RESCUE PLATFORMS THAT FOLD OUT FROM THE CABIN DOOR ... EXTENDING OVER THE WATER. THE COAST GUARD SAYS RESCUE WORK WITH THE PLATFORMS IS MUCH FASTER THAN HOISTING PERSONS FROM THE WATER INTO A HELICOPTER. THE PLATFORMS ARE PARTICULARLY USEFUL IN THE RESCUE OF INJURED PERSONS.

    THE NEW HELICOPTER, CALLED THE HH-52A, HAS BEEN OPERATED SUCCESSFULLY IN WATER WITH WAVES 8 TO 10 FEET HIGH. IT HAS A RANGE OF 449 MILES (724 KMS), A TOP SPEED OF 110 MILES (177 KMS) AN HOUR.
