New AS350 B3e helicopter for Alaska Wildlife Troopers and State Troopers
American Eurocopter has received an order for an AS350 B3e helicopter from the Alaska Department of Public Safety to support operations of the Alaska Wildlife Troopers and State Troopers.
The new AS350 B3e will be based in Fairbanks, Alaska.
“When we decided to add another helicopter to our fleet, we knew we needed something with the performance and capacity that would allow us to complete our wide variety of missions,” said Colonel Gary Folger, Alaska Wildlife Troopers. “The AStar’s wide cabin and flat floor gives us plenty of room for mission equipment and cargo, which is important when supporting our troopers and citizens on the ground.”
“The AS350 B3e will be a great addition for the Alaska Department of Public Safety,” said Ed Van Winkle, American Eurocopter’s sales manager for Airborne Law Enforcement. “It will provide them with a reliable platform to conduct a wide range of law enforcement and utility missions in a challenging operating environment.”
