Each section is staffed by a crew consisting of a pilot and a Trooper/flight paramedic. Currently, we are recruiting civilian pilots.

The hiring process for helicopter pilots is rigorous due to the challenging nature of the job.

You will work with your Trooper/flight paramedic to hoist stranded and injured persons from dangerous locations. You will assist ground police units with searches for criminals as well as missing persons. The Command’s helicopters are often requested to provide observation and coordination in high-speed vehicle pursuits.

Training requires approximately three months to complete depending upon your level of experience.
