Bolivian Government Minister Carlos Romero is reported in local press as announcing that the the national law enforcement agency “Policía Boliviana” will receive two Robinson R44s later this month.
Due to the altitudes involved in Bolivia, the pair will not be able to fly around the capital La Paz, which lies between 10,650 and 13,250 feet above sea level. They will instead be operational in the state of Santa Cruz to the east of the country, a much lower area with typical levels of around 1,000 feet above sea level.
The two R44s are expected to be part of a new initiative towards a wider national airborne police network, and there are hints of spending around “$2.5M per helicopter” for the La Paz state.
