Phoenix Police Department Plans To Upgrade Fleet

Five New H125 Helicopters On Order

The Phoenix Police Department reveals plans to upgrade its helicopter fleet with five new H125 helicopters. Next year, deliveries are expected to begin. 

“We spent a lot of time analyzing which platform would best fit all of our operational needs as we began to renew our fleet, and the H125 met all of our requirements,” said Paul Apolinar, chief pilot at Phoenix Police Department. “Our responsibility is to protect and serve the Phoenix community, and these aircraft will allow us not only to protect from the skies, but to perform rescues in remote locations all over Arizona. We needed an aircraft that excels in hot temperatures, and the H125 is really the best aircraft for the job in such conditions.”

The helicopter is well known for it’s high performance in hot and high conditions. The features of the helicopter include hydraulics, FADEC, a crash resistant fuel system and advanced glass-panel cockpit. Built at Airbus Helicopters in Columbus, Mississippi, the team is composed of 40% veterans.

The H125 accounts for nearly half of all intermediate single engine helicopters delivered for airborne law enforcement missions in North America over the last decade.

“The H125 is one of the most popular law enforcement helicopters in the U.S., for good reason,” said Ron Kelley, airborne law enforcement segment manager at Airbus Helicopters, Inc. “Its versatility and high performance make it an ideal platform for diverse law enforcement missions, including aerial surveillance and search and rescue, and is a proven solution that’s consistently ready for the call when it’s needed most.”
