The additional helicopters, with their enhanced capability, will fulfil Botswana’s requirement for an expanded airborne law enforcement and crime prevention force.

Arnaud Montalvo, general manager for Airbus Helicopters Southern Africa, said: “We are proud to continue our relationship with the Botswana Police Air Support Unit and that it has selected the AS350 B3e, which has a proven pedigree in police missions – especially in hot and high conditions typical of the much of Botswana.

“We are confident these aircraft will make an enormous contribution to safeguarding the citizens of Botswana and their property.”
