Five H-125 helicopters for the Phoenix Police Department
Deliveries to begin next year
The Phoenix Police Department has signed a new order to upgrade its airborne law enforcement helicopter fleet with five new H-125 units. Deliveries are expected to begin next year.
Known for its power, versatility and performance in hot and high conditions, the model features dual hydraulics, dual channel FADEC, a crash resistant fuel system, and advanced glass-panel cockpit displays.
The model accounts for nearly half of all intermediate single engine helicopters delivered for airborne law enforcement missions in North America over the last decade. It is built at Airbus Helicopters, Inc.’s production and completion facility in Columbus, Mississippi, by a team made up of 40% US veterans.
The industry is one of the leading supplier of helicopters in the United States, with a presence dating back more than 50 years. A team of more than 700 employees operates local production and completion facilities for the H-125 and UH-72 Lakota aircraft in Columbus, Mississippi, and provides world-class training, aftermarket support, and technical assistance from Grand Prairie, Texas, for the North American regional in-service fleet of nearly 3,100 units.
