Royal Bahamas Police

History

Narrative Summary

The Royal Bahamas Police Force first established an ‘Airwing Section’ in 1964, operating chartered private aircraft. Its main role was surveillance and air patrol, to discourage illegal immigrants and poachers from entering Bahamas territorial areas. In the late seventies and early eighties the detection of drug trafficking was added to its mandate.

In 1991 the Section acquired its first owned and operated aircraft, a Piper Navajo. A second Navajo was obtained soon afterwards. These aircraft were retired in 2002 and put into open storage without replacement.

Circa 2009 the Section was reorganised and renamed the Air Support Service Unit. In 2009 a new Cessna 208 Grand Caravan was taken into service. Roles now include VIP Transport, Police personnel transport, Search and Rescue support, prisoner transport and border patrol.

Key Dates

1964 RBPF Police Airwing Section established.
1991 Airwing renamed Air Support Service Unit.
1991 First aircraft delivered.
2009 Cessna 208 Grand Caravan delivered.

Swiss Air Rescue

Operator Profile

History

Narrative Summary

Swiss Air Rescue (REGA) is a private, non-profit organisation that provides air rescue and emergency medical assistance in Switzerland and Lichtenstein. REGA mainly assists in mountain rescues and in cases of life-threatening emergencies elsewhere. REGA will also return a patron to Switzerland from a foreign country if they are in need of urgent medical care.

Swiss Air Rescue was first established in 1952 as a branch of the Swiss rescue association, Schweizerische Lebensrettungsgesellschaft (SLRG). Initially the focus was on providing medically trained parachutists, but soon small fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters were employed to deliver help more directly.

In 1960 Swiss Air-Rescue broke away from the SLRG and became a stand-alone organisation. Later the same year the first patient transfer flight back to Switzerland was carried out.

In 1979 the name REGA was adopted as a common name for the organisation across multi-lingual Switzerland.

Swiss Air Rescue – REGA now operates a fleet of 17 helicopters and 3 jet aircraft.

Key Dates

27 April 1952 Swiss Air-Rescue first established.
14 October 1952 First rescue carried out using a fixedw-ing aircraft.
22 December 1952 First rescue using a helicopter.
19 March 1960 Swiss Air-Rescue is re-organised.
May 1960 First patient repatriation fight carried out.
1979 REGA name officially adopted.

Current Status

The aircraft of REGA are fully operational.

Honduran National Police

Operator Profile

History

Narrative Summary

The first Honduran National Police force was established in 1888. After military rule was imposed, the Police force was dissolved and replaced by a succession of para-military organisations, starting with the Civil Guard.

In 1998 the Honduran National Police force was re-established as a civil force under the Ministry of Security. The Directorate of National Preventive Police (Dirección Nacional de la Policía Preventiva – DNPP) established an aviation unit in 1999, with the delivery of two Bell 206 helicopters.

Key Dates

5 January 1888    Policia Nacional de Honduras first established.
1959    Police dissolved and replaced by Civil Guard.
1963    Security Task Force (CES) replaces Civil Guard.
1975    Public Security Force (FUSEP) replaces CES.
28 May 1998    Policia Nacional de Honduras re-established.
1999    PNH Aviation Unit established.

Current Status

The PNH helicopters were intended to be used primarily to provide air support to ground commands. In fact, a scandal errupted when it was discovered they were mainly used for VIP transport of government officials.

Future Plans

No further aquisitions are planned.

Markings

National Insignia

PNH helicopters initially wore a white and silver colour scheme with the PNH shield on the fuselage side, together with the service titles ‘POLICIA NACIONAL’. The national flag appeared on the tail fin. By 2009 the silver was replaced by blue, but the other markings were unchanged.

Aircraft Serial Numbers

All PNH helicopters carry civil registrations, e.g. HR-PNV.

New Zealand Police

Operator Profile

History

Narrative Summary

The New Zealand Police in Auckland launched air support trials with a leased Bell 206 JetRanger in November 1988, following a series of bank robberies. The trials were very successful, but the single-engined helicopter type was deemed unsuitable for the job. In March (July?) 1989 a twin-engined Aerospatiale AS355 was placed on permanent lease, and the ‘Eagle’ Air Support Unit formally established. A second AS355 was obtained in 1991.

At around the same time, the Police began covert operations for aerial spotting of marijuana plantations. This was done using leased aircraft and helicopters on contract from Airwork and Scott Aviation, and also with police-owned Cessna light aircraft with false registrations. These operations have incurred at least two fatal accidents, a mid-air colision in 1993, and a fatal crash in 2005.

The Police now operate a Cessna 172 and a Hughes 500D in plain markings, but with POLICE registrations, in connection with these drug-growing searches.

Key Dates

November 1988 Start of a trial operation in Auckland using a leased Bell 206 helicopter.
March 1989 Dedicated AS355 enters service with Auckland unit.
July 1991 Second AS355 enters service with Auckland unit.
26 November 1993 Fatal mid-air collision involving aircraft leased by the Police.

Current Status

The aircraft of the NZP ASU are fully operational.

Future Plans

No plans known.


Markings

National Insignia

No special markings or service titles are displayed.

Aircraft Serial Numbers

Aircraft operating for the New Zealand Police have an exemption to carry ‘Police ‘ markings instead of a conventional registration, e.g. AS355 POLICE 1. Known registrations are POLICE 1, 2, 3 and 5. It is not known if there was actually a POLICE 4.
