WHAT:                                   Arrival of new RCIPS H145 helicopter

WHEN:                                   Friday, 6 December – please arrive between 2:30 – 2:45 p.m. at the latest so the Head of the Air Operations Unit can provide a safety brief before set up.  

WHERE:                                 Air Operations Unit hangar

PARTICIPANTS:                   H.E. Governor Martyn Roper, Hon. Premier Alden McLaughlin and RCIPS crew

BACKGROUND:                   The new RCIPS helicopter will arrive on island on Friday. The new aircraft will be used alongside the Unit’s existing aircraft and will provide vital air support to the RCIPS. 

The H145 will boost Cayman’s capability in the areas of search and rescue, law enforcement and border protection operations. 

The aircraft will also be used to respond to disasters and other emergency situations in the other UK Caribbean Overseas Territories.  

The plan will be to fly both helicopters in together in formation. Positioning in front of the hangar in hover, they will then land together.
