(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The operations included 72 air ambulance missions covering road accidents and patient transport between hospitals; six search and rescue missions and 224 police patrols.The Air Wing Department at the Abu Dhabi Police on Saturday announced that they undertook 1015 missions during the first half of 2014. The operations included 72 air ambulance missions covering road accidents and patient transport between hospitals; six search and rescue missions; 224 police patrols; 522 training flights; 132 maintenance-related sorties; and 59 missions for different police and humanitarian purposes. Brigadier Staff Pilot Ali Mohammed Al Mazroui Head of the Air Wing Department said: “We have 15 aircraft operating at the department. They provide the necessary support and assistance to the different departments at the Abu Dhabi Police GHQ in addition to air ambulance services and immediate search and rescue operations in remote locations or on external roads. The Air Wing’s 24/7 service also includes offshore rescue.

“During the first half of this year the Air Wing Department undertook several missions that included aerial photography and road monitoring among other tasks. The department’s aerial surveillance aircraft carry out 24/7 patrols across Abu Dhabi throughout the week to monitor the highways and internal roads especially at the peak hours and others recommended by the central operations room.”

Lt-Colonel Pilot Salem Khalifa Al Suwaidi Operations Branch Manager said: “The Abu Dhabi Police Air Wing is continuously monitoring traffic from the sky particularly during peak hours with at least nine air patrols being dispatched across the emirate’s territories on a weekly basis: Three patrols in Abu Dhabi Al Ain and the Western Region respectively.

“The air crew includes two pilots a doctor and a thermal imaging device operator. The operator transmits live footage directly to the Central Operations Room and the Air Wing Department’s Operations Room during the mission. Communication between the operations room and the aircraft is conducted via Terrestrial Trunked Radio (Tetra) device which easily guides the aircraft to the location according to the coordinates specified by the operations room. The thermal imaging device is particularly handy at night and ensures efficient night patrols.”

Lt-Colonel Al Suwaidi indicated that the Air Wing pilots are highly qualified Emirati citizens.
