The California Highway Patrol (CHP) chose Mahindra Aerospace’s GippsAero GA8 Airvan in a competitive bidding process for an airborne surveillance aircraft. The CHP currently flies 26 aircraft, including some Cessna 206s that have logged more than 10,000 hours. According to Gary Standel, president of West Coast Aircraft Sales (WCAS), the CHP selected the GA8 because “we were the lowest-cost bidder able to be fully compliant with bid requirements.” WCAS specializes in ISR-configured solutions and is the western U.S. Airvan distributor. Paravion Technology of Ft. Collins, Colo., will provide custom mission equipment integration for the CHP Airvan.
