Police Aviation Services
To be an effective force multiplier, police teams need to
retain 100 per cent confidence that their air assets can be in
the right place at the right time - and fully operational. PAS
crews deliver that confidence around the UK, every single day
of the year.
Simply stated, PAS supplies outstanding aviation resources
to its customers, through the skills of its pilots and engineers
and the excellent operational performance of its equipment.
At any moment during the day, teams of pilots and engineers
are on duty at a dozen locations around the country. Some of
them will be already airborne, perhaps reacting to a call to
find a missing child or to pursue a fleeing criminal. They will
be using the latest technology to pinpoint the location of their
subject and to direct ground units to the spot - in a fraction
of the time that would be taken if only ground-based resources
were available. Others will be standing by to respond to such
a call. All will be alert with a helicopter ready to fly.
These front-line teams are supported by colleagues at Gloucestershire
Airport. There are spare 'floater' pilots and observers in case
one of the regular crewmembers is unavailable.
There are spare aircraft in case of both scheduled and unscheduled
maintenance periods. There are engineers ready to react to any
circumstance and, in support of them; hundreds of thousands of
pounds-worth of spare parts lie ready in the stores. Links to
manufacturers and suppliers ensure that non-stock items are delivered
promptly and just-in-time stock levels maintained. Backing up
all this are planning, administrative and management staff.
PAS also controls SAS overseas engineering contracts. These
encompass design, maintenance, overhaul and completion services
for both helicopters and aeroplanes.
