26 November 2013. The UK National Air Police (SNAP) has awarded a contract to Airborne Technologies Austria to deliver a surveillance plane equipped fixed wing role for air support across the country.
The platform, double piston Vulcanair P68R, will be equipped with a Wescam MX10 camera and Augmented Reality System Churchill when a six-month operational trial early next year begins.
If the test succeeds, Vulcanair said that could lead to the purchase of about half a dozen aircraft retractable landing gear equipped. A P68 is already in service with the German police.
