Eyes of the law get sharper
Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first upgraded National Police Air Service (NPAS) H135 helicopter under a contract signed in December 2017 to equip and standardise the UK police helicopter fleet’s Night Vision (NVIS) capability. When the upgrade programme is complete, all seven NPAS H135s will be capable of NVIS operations down to ground level, enhancing their night-time surveillance capabilities at all heights and in all environments. The first to be upgraded, G-POLF, was also the first H135 delivered to UK police, in 2002, and with more than 15,000 flight hours logged is now the type’s global fleet leader.
