Guangzhou Police and Airbus helicopters have signed an agreement today for an order of one H145 light helicopter for law enforcement duties, to 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,” said by Xie Xiaodan, Vice Mayor and General Director of Guangzhou Police. “I am confident that the H145 can help to improve our efficiency and capability to serve the people of Guangzhou.”

Guangzhou Police’s H145 will be equipped with a powerful searchlight, external hoist, rappelling ropes, tactical radio, cargo sling, Bambi Bucket and stretcher.

“We are honored 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,” said Norbert Ducrot, President of Airbus Helicopters China.  “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.”
