Blackwater's Anti-Pirating Helos

In response to a growing number of pirates hijacking ships at sea – nearly 50 this year alone- Blackwater, the Moyock, N.C.-based security firm, announced that it is actively marketing its protection services to the worldwide shipping industry. In addition to offering highly trained, heavily armed personnel to help guard vessels, the company is also marketing the services of its own 183-ft ship capable of carrying two helicopters. Blackwater already contracts its VIP security services to the U.S. government for operations in the Middle East, using OH-6s to free up military rotorcraft for war-related sorties. For related news
