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.
