L.A. County Sheriff Hires Hanger One To Equip New Copters

January 26, 2011  | 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has agreed to a contract worth at least $2 million with Hangar One Avionics to upfit a new fleet of 14 Eurocopter AS350B2 helicopters.

Hangar One will equip each helicopter with avionics and mission equipment including a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera system, with live video-feed down-linking. An on-board GPS-based mapping system and multi-band digital radio communications will allow the aircrew to provide real-time support to law enforcement personnel and operational command centers.  

"The installation project will fulfill the LASD's requirements for helicopter cockpit avionics and special mission equipment that are capable of superior performance in policing its vast territory of rural and urban communities," according to Ken Piland, manager of Hangar One Avionics. "The newly equipped helicopters will be delivered to the LASD beginning in February 2011."

Hangar One is a division of Schubach Aviation that specializes in repairs and installation services for government and private aircraft. Other recent law enforcement clients include the San Diego PD, Tucson PD, East Bay Regional Park Police, Placer County Sheriff, Stanislaus County Sheriff, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, California Highway Patrol, and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
