Robinson Helicopter Company has delivered two R44 Raven IIs to the Philippine National Police (PNP) on July 25. The aircraft were purchased through Robinson’s longtime dealer Lionair (Manilla, Philippines), marking the first acquisition of Robinson helicopters by the Philippine government.
The PNP is the armed civilian national police force tasked with law enforcement throughout the Southeast Asian country’s 7,000+ islands. The acquisition is part of an overall effort by the government to strengthen and expand its law enforcement. Upon their arrival in Manila, the R44s will be turned over to the Special Action Force Aviation Unit (SAF-AU) to be used for training.Email Post to a Friend
