Jet Source, a Part 145 avionics installation and airframe maintenance facility at McClellan-Palomar Airport (CRQ) in Carlsbad, Calif., has completed installing law enforcement equipment in the second of four San Diego Police Eurocopter AS 350B-3s, according to the company. The package is night-vision goggle capable and includes a Max-Viz infrared enhanced-vision system, Avalex moving map and a custom-designed radio command suite. To meet San Diego Police mission specifications, Jet Source designed and fabricated a custom panel, console and racks.

“Our aircrews believe that not only do they have the most state-of-the-art law enforcement helicopter, they also have the most ergonomically friendly cockpit,” said Rich Parrella of the San Diego Police Air Support Unit. “The crews’ ability to perform their mission in a safe and effective manner has been greatly enhanced.”

Jet Source, exhibiting at Heli-Expo 2007 Booth No. 3906, specializes in special-mission aircraft completions for law enforcement, fire, medical and electronic newsgathering.
