The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Section recently received a new AS350 B3e completed by Metro Aviation. This multi-mission law enforcement aircraft is equipped with a cargo hook for sling work including a Bambi Bucket for fire suppression and a hoist for rescue operations. The AS350 B3e is also equipped with an HD color/low-light camera and recording device with Forward Looking Infrared (F.L.I.R.) for surveillance and SWAT operations. Images from the camera are displayed with mapping information on four cabin/cockpit-mounted displays. The aircraft is also equipped with fast rope bars and NVG technology.

“It was a pleasure working with the team at Metro Aviation on this completion. The quality of workmanship, design, and attention to detail was impressive,” said Chief Pilot Steve Farris. “I look forward to our continued partnership and working with them in the future.”

This AS350 B3e replaces an older aircraft in the Aviation Section’s fleet and will be vital in providing assistance throughout the county and surrounding areas with patrols, pursuits, search and rescue, and surveillance – among other missions.
