222 POLICE PATROL
• Police patroller • Major event surveillance • Quick-reaction transport
Based at Lippitts Hill in Essex, the
Metropolitan Police Air Support Unit found the Bell 222 to be an ideal crime – busting helicopter. Powerful twin engines and stable flight characteristics, as well as good speed, are vital when tracking criminals. The pilots who fly the regular patrols over London’s streets are actually employed by Bristow Helicopters and have extensive experience. Whether flying by day or night, the Bell 222 proved to be an invaluable asset in the fight against crime.
