Helicopter Sling-Loads

5.4.1.Helicopter sling-loads should be utilized whenever possible to transport hazardous
cargo. Hazardous cargo moved by sling-load is excepted from the requirements of this
manual, however, if the cargo is likely to be returned by aircraft internally, then the
packaging, marking, and labeling requirements of this manual should be adhered to. Sling-
load cargo should also be manifested whenever the capability to do so exists.

5.5

Compatibility and Segregation

5.5.1.Incompatible hazardous materials must be segregated to the
greatest extent possible. Due to variations in aircraft size and the
limited amount of cargo space on most aircraft in the Antarctic, no
specific segregation distances will be mandated. Table 5.A will be used
to indicate the compatibility and segregation requirements of hazardous

An “X” at an intersection of a row and column indicates that these hazard
classes/divisions should be segregated. Materials in hazard classes 2, 6,
7, and 9, and division 4.1, need not be segregated from other hazard
classes/divisions.

Division 1.4 explosives may be transported with all other hazard classes, but
will be segregated from other explosives according to explosives
compatibility group/letter.

Explosives will be segregated among themselves according to their
explosives compatibility groups (represented by letters). Explosives which do
not belong in the same compatibility group should not be stowed together,
except that Compatibility Groups C, D, and E, may be stowed together.
Explosives of Division 1.4, Compatibility Group S, may be stowed with other
compatibility groups except Compatibility Groups A or L. The compatibility
group letter is displayed on the explosive hazard label on the package.
