LE Bells Receive Becker DVCS6100
Three law enforcement operators have chosen Becker Avionics’ DVCS6100 digital audio system. Fairfax County’s Police Helicopter Division in Virginia has upgraded its new Bell 429 with DVCS6100. The Bell was outfitted with the system at Paradigm Aerospace Corporation (PAC) in Mt. Pleasant, Pa. The unit will enter service this summer. Fairfax County’s aviation unit also flies two Bell 407s. Houston Police Department’s Air Support Unit has equipped its multi-role Bell 412EP as well. Australia’s Hunter Region Helicopter Rescue Service has also selected the DVCS for its 412EP. Both the Houston PD and Hunter helicopters are receiving the upgrade at Eagle Copters in Calgary, Canada.
