New Zealand Police has officially unveiled its brand new fleet of Eagle helicopters at a launch event at Onehunga this afternoon.

From July 1st, the Police Air Support Unit will be serviced by three twin-engine Bell 429 helicopters, which replace the three AS355 squirrels previously in operation.

The change in aircraft follows the announcement of a new contractor, Advanced Flight Ltd, who was selected in late 2018 to supply helicopter services for our Air Support Unit.
