The Pennsylvania State Police entered the law enforcement aviation community in the fall of 1968. In 1969, the Aviation Section purchased two Bell Model 47 Helicopters and assigned six pilots to the Section. Since then, the Section has grown to over thirty Trooper pilots and full-time mechanics, using six helicopters and two airplanes statewide.
The Aviation Section of the Pennsylvania State Police provides aerial support to all federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies within the Commonwealth and assists in other non-emergency situations, including major civic and sporting events.
