Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has taken delivery of Canada's first H145 helicopter. It will support tactical deployments day and night over land and water for the emergency response team, expand options in the area of fast roping and hoisting, assist with missing persons investigations and add capabilities to search and rescue operations.

The aircraft will be based at the Lower Mainland facility in Langley, British Columbia, and will support operations throughout the province.

“With its enhanced safety features and reputation for reduced maintenance and excellent availability, the multi-role H145 is an ideal aircraft for multi-faceted law enforcement missions," says Romain Trapp, president of Airbus Helicopters Canada. “We are very pleased that the H145 will enter into service to support RCMP operations, assisting the men and women who serve and protect Canadians.”

Airbus Helicopters are the aircraft of choice for law enforcement missions across Canada, capturing 83 per cent of the market.

The H145 has been equipped with a wide variety of mission specific equipment including external hoist and rope down device (for one or two persons), Trakka A800 searchlight, Enhanced Reality System, Health Monitoring System, FLIR, Night Vision Goggles, Tactical Flight Officer workstation and internal long range fuel tank system.
