CNC completes law enforcement Caravan deliveries
In addition to leading the aircraft acquisitions, CNC also developed comprehensive law enforcement mission suites for both aircraft and will be providing ongoing operator training and support to the agencies.
CNC hands over the new Cessna 208 Caravan to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.

California-based aviation technology and wireless communications company CNC Technologies has completed delivery of two new Cessna 208 Caravans to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. CNC acquired the new aircraft on behalf of the agencies through its CNC Aviation division, an authorised supplier of Textron aircraft including Cessna and Beechcraft.

In addition to leading the aircraft acquisitions, CNC also developed comprehensive law enforcement mission suites for each of the new aircraft and will be providing ongoing operator training and support to the agencies. Each customer will be operating a Caravan equipped with an advanced thermal imager, moving map system and a tactical flight officer station with large monitor, keyboard and tactical radios. All of the mission suites were designed for full integration with the agencies' respective communication and downlink systems, enabling seamless connectivity from day one.

Installation and integration of the mission suites was performed by Hangar One Avionics for the CHP aircraft and by Pro Star Aviation for the Pennsylvania AG Office aircraft.

“We have strong existing relationships with both of these agencies and are pleased to have been selected as a partner for the recent aircraft acquisitions,” says founding partner and chief technology officer Ron Magocsi. “We look forward to continued work in supporting their public safety missions.”

The assignments build upon CNC's growth over the past year and work with a broad range of law enforcement and public safety agencies including the Swedish National Police, Jamaica Defence Force and Massachusetts State Police.
