Guangzhou Police acquires an H145 helicopter

Guangzhou Police has ordered a H145 helicopter for law enforcement duties. The aircraft will be delivered at the end of 2016.

“Helicopters are a great resource for law enforcement agencies, as they can effectively help ground forces to accomplish a multitude of operations including air patrol, transportation of police force, firefighting, disaster relief and rescue, traffic dispersion and air command.”

Xie Xiaodan, vice mayor and general director of Guangzhou Police said: “Helicopters are a great resource for law enforcement agencies, as they can effectively help ground forces to accomplish a multitude of operations including air patrol, transportation of police force, firefighting, disaster relief and rescue, traffic dispersion and air command. I am confident that the H145 can help to improve our efficiency and capability to serve the people of Guangzhou.”

“We are honoured that the Guangzhou Police has selected the H145 as their first helicopter, which incidentally will be the first of this type to enter the Chinese market.”

Norbert Ducrot, president of Airbus Helicopters China added: “We are honoured that the Guangzhou Police has selected the H145 as their first helicopter, which incidentally will be the first of this type to enter the Chinese market. The arrival of the H145 in China will be the opportunity to demonstrate how this technologically advanced helicopter is perfectly designed for the most demanding missions of Chinese police forces in the country.”

Guangzhou Police’s H145 will be equipped with a searchlight, external hoist, rappelling ropes, tactical radio, cargo sling, Bambi Bucket and stretcher. The helicopter can rapidly transport eight to 10 officers including special police units to any location.
