On Friday, July 27, 2018, at 1:00 PM, Chief Eddie Garcia will unveil “Air3,” a new Airbus H125 helicopter to replace the current Air2 helicopter. Air3 will provide greater safety for officers and the community with its modern capabilities.
The Airbus H125 helicopter is one of the most commonly operated single engine helicopters in law enforcement and has an exceptional safety record. It has increased passenger capacity with the ability to accommodate six occupants as opposed to the previous three person capacity.
Air3 will assist units on the ground for a variety of situations, which include supporting patrol officers on routine calls for service, responding to priority events such as vehicle pursuits, and searching for armed suspects and missing persons. Air3 also provides a visible and psychological deterrent to law violators while it patrols the City through the air. Air3 is a critical asset for specialized units working special events or conducting tactical operations where aerial views provide enhanced situational awareness for personnel managing the events.
Air3 will land for media viewing in front of the San Jose Police Department, located at 201 W. Mission St. in San Jose.
