The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Aviation Unit has chosen Boise, Idaho-based Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) to provide night vision modifications on four MD500s. The agreement—announced during the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA) Conference in mid-July—calls for ASU to complete work on the cockpit modifications by the end of August. ASU President Mike Atwood notes that “night vision is another tool that enables law enforcement officers to protect and serve communities across America” and increases pilot safety.
