LA Sheriff Receives 12th AS350B2
American Eurocopter has wrapped up its order with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s (LASD) Department by delivering the last of a dozen AS350B2s. The helicopters, purchased in August 2010, are part of LASD’s Aero Bureau upgrade program. Aero Bureau also features the Air 5 SAR program, one of the most advanced technical rescue and paramedic response resources available in the U.S. This unit can also deploy tactical response forces to assist with major incidents. Aero Bureau is currently contracted to upgrade Air 5’s fleet with three AS332s.
