FlightSafety selected by LAPD for Bell 412 training

FlightSafety International has been selected by the Los Angeles Police Department for its Bell 412 training.

Officer Kevin Gallagher, chief pilot of the LAPD Air Support Unit said: “Our King Air pilots have experienced consistently high quality training and support from FlightSafety for years, so they were our first choice to support us launching the Bell 412 program.”

“The Bell 412 program is a critical component in the homeland security initiative that the City of Los Angeles has launched to protect its citizens, and we need the best trained pilots for this mission,” added Gallagher.

“We are honoured to be selected by the LAPD Air Support Unit to provide Bell 412 training.”

Steve Gross, Vice President, Sales said: “We are honoured to be selected by the LAPD Air Support Unit to provide Bell 412 training. This clearly demonstrates our mutual commitment to helicopter safety and FlightSafety’s ability to provide the highest quality training that meets the specific needs of the LAPD.”

The training will be conducted at FlightSafety’s learning centre in Dallas, Texas using a new Level D qualified interchangeable Bell 212/412EP FastFin simulator.
