New South Wales Police Air Wing

History

Narrative Summary

The New South Wales Police is one of the oldest police forces in Australia, with origins dating back to the establishment a small policing unit for Sydney in 1789. The state-wide New South Wales Police Force was officially established in 1862. In 1946 an Aviation Branch was formed, to operate an ex-RAAF Avro Anson. The aircraft was withdrawn in 1950, without replacement.

In 1978 a study for the NSW government concluded that the Police Service should acquire its own helicopter for use in crime prevention and traffic work. An Aviation Support unit was established the following year. The Aviation Support Branch has now expanded to 5 helicopters and 2 fixed wing aircraft.

Australian Federal Police

History

Narrative Summary

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is the national police agency of Australia. It has a similar role to the FBI in the USA. It was formed on 19 October 1979 from the merger of the former Commonwealth Police and the Australian Capital Territory Police. In January 2005 the AFP established the Operational Response Team (ORT), a team of specialist tactical police officers trained to assist regular AFP officers serving with the RAMSI peacekeeping force in the Solomon Islands. THe ORT was soon expanded to fulfil further operations, both within Australia and overseas, and was renamed the Operational Response Group (ORG) in 2006. To enable these long distance operations, an Aviation Support Group was created within the OSG, to provide leased aircraft and helicopters under contract. The AFP has no aircraft or helicopters of its own.

The AFP uses aircraft and helicopters as required, for training missions and operational Police work. Operations include tactical, VIP and surveillance tasks. The Aviation Support Group has qualified air crews that work with the contract pilots during police operations. Bell 212 and Bell 412 helicopters were contracted from Helicorp, (later brought out by Toll Remote Logistics), for support to the RAMSI operation, while crew and pre-deployment training was conducted with BK117s from United Aero.

On 1 July 2012 the OSG was merged with the AFP’s Canberra-based Specialist Response and Security team (SRS) to create the Specialist Response Group (SRG), with much the same duties but reduced duplication of resources. Somewhat controversialy, from 2013 a Gippsland GA8 Airvan fitted with specialist surveillance equipment was used over Australia. It even had a specific exemption allowing it to operate without navigation lights.

Key Dates

19 October 1979 Australian Federal Police established.
January 2005 Operational Support Team established.
1 July 2012 Specialist Response Group established.

Current Status

The AFP uses leased aircraft and helicopters on short and long term contracts. It has no aircraft of its own.

Future Plans

No plans known.

South Australia Police Air Wing

History

Narrative Summary

Unlike the other police services of Australia, the South Australia Police (SAPOL) does not appear to have established a fixed wing aircraft unit. A helicopter appears to have been in use by 1980. At present, it occaisionally uses an EC120 helicopter from the State Rescue Helicopter Service, which operates under Motor Accident Commission (MAC) colours. This gives South Australia the poorest police air support of any Australian state.

Key Dates

19?? First helicopter leased.
May 1980 State Rescue Helicopter Service established.

Current Status

The SAPOL uses an EC120 from the State Rescue Helicopter Service on an ‘as required’ basis.

Future Plans

No plans known.


Markings

National Insignia

The helicopter operates in Motor Accident Commission (MAC) colours.

Aircraft Serial Numbers

The MAC helicopters carry Australian civil aircraft registrations, with the last two letters ‘SA’ for South Australia, eg. EC120 VH-OSA.

Australian Department of Civil Aviation

History

Narrative Summary

A Civil Aviation Branch of the Department of Defence was first created in 1921 to oversee the development of civil aviation in Australia. In 1938 it was made a separate government Department. After a series of departmental reorganisations that started in 1973, a separate Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) emerged in 1988, to control aviation safety regulation and provide air traffic services. In July 1995 the Civil Aviation Authority was split into an airspace management organisation, called Airservices Australia, and an aviation safety authority, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Throughout its life, the DCA/CAA operated a small fleet of aircraft for transport and Navaid Calibration duties.

Key Dates

28 March 1921    Civil Aviation Branch of the Department of Defence first established.
24 November 1938    Removed from military control as Department of Civil Aviation (DCA).
30 November 1973    Became Department of Transport, Air Transport Group.
7 May 1982    Department of Aviation (DOA) separated from Department of Transport.
24 July 1987    Absorbed into Department of Transport and Communications.
1 July 1988    Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) created.
6 July 1995    Airservices Australia created from part of the Civil Aviation Authority.

Current Status

The Department of Civil Aviation eventually became the Civil Aviation Authority of Australia, which ceased to exist in 1995.

Future Plans

Not applicable.

Markings

Special Markings

DCA aircraft were normally left in a bare metal or silver dope finish, with a Department of Civil Aviation crest on the nose. A white colour scheme with a blue fuselage cheatline was adopted from the 1960s, with some later aircraft having light grey undersides. No service titles were carried by DCA aircraft.

Aircraft Serial Numbers

Department of Civil Aviation aircraft carried Australian civil aircraft registrations, of which many were in the sequence VH-CAx, where CA stood for Civil Aviaiton, e.g. Avro Anson VH-CAB.

Aircam/Airwar

The Aircam/Airwar series of books covered the combat operations of the world’s major air forces during WW1 and WW2. Each title focused on a specific role – fighter, bomber, ground attack etc – within a defined theatre of operations. The narrative text provided an outline history of the campaigns fought by these units, describng the men, the missions, the machines and the markings carried. Well illustrated with rare b+w photos, each book also included 6 pages of colour artwork illustrating the aircraft, unit insignia, vehicles and aircrew uniforms of the featured units. (Initially called ‘Aircam/Airwar’, to link with a previous Osprey series, the series title became ‘Osprey/Airwar’ from volume 13).

In 2002 all of these titles were reprinted as facsimile editions to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their first publication.

Publisher: Osprey Publishing Ltd, UK Language: English
48 pages, Softback, 7.25″ x 9.75″ size, 30-40 b+w photos, 6 pages colour drawings.
