The unit currently operates three Eurocopter EC145 helicopters on a 24-hour basis flying an average of over 275 hours per month. These are the first aircraft of this type to be used by any UK air support unit, although they are already widely used in Europe. The Metropolitan Police Service aircraft currently have an average of 1,100 hours in each aircraft.
