The Post-Standard news outlet, based in the city of Syracuse in New York State, is reporting that the State Police will consolidate their aviation operations as early as this Wednesday. Units in Syracuse and Batavia will be moved to Rochester, leaving the other two bases at Albany and Saranac Lake untouched – coincidentally the only two that provide support for Department of Environmental Conservation missions as well as aerial fire suppression missions.
No employees will lose their jobs as a result of the move, state police said.
New York State Police operate three Bell 430s, one Bell 407 and four UH-1Hs.
