Metro Aviation has outfitted an H125 helicopter for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office based in Tampa, Florida, the company announced on 5 March.

The helicopter was configured with mission-ready equipment including a Goodrich electric-powered rescue hoist, LoJack system integration for the recovery of stolen vehicles and night vision google compatible avionics.

The aircraft joins a fleet of four Airbus AS350 B2s and will be used to conduct surveillance, hoist operations and SAR missions.

Jason Doyle, chief pilot for Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, said: ‘This Airbus H125 aircraft and Metro Aviation’s designed and installed mission package represents a significant increase in capabilities for our unit and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. The staff at Metro Aviation took our mission and equipment needs and provided a well laid out, clean, streamlined installation.’

The outfitting work was carried out at Metro Aviation’s Shreveport-based completion centre.
