Robinson R66 Police Helicopter Joins Polk County Sheriff’s Aviation Fleet


On April 2, Robinson Helicopter Company delivered R66 Police Helicopter serial number 1025 to Florida’s Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO).


PCSO’s R66 police helicopter is the first R66 Police Helicopter configured with a Wescam MX-10 EO/IR imaging system and an HD infrared sensor, a system widely used by homeland security and law enforcement agencies. In addition to a standard Spectrolab SX-7 Starsun searchlight system, PCSO’s R66 includes an optional Aerocomputers UC-6000 digital mapping system, auxiliary fuel tank, impact resistant windshield, Garmin’s G500H TXi 1060 flight display with synthetic vision, and NVG-rated instruments for a future NVG certification.


PCSO air support flies on average 1,100 hours each year. Centrally located between Orlando and Tampa, PSCO provides air support for every law enforcement agency in its 2,000-square-mile county as well as surrounding counties.


“Having a robust aviation unit is critical to our mission of keeping people safe. We are thrilled to add the Robinson R66 turbine helicopter to our aviation fleet. Not only is this aircraft a great asset to law enforcement, it allows us to cost effectively support and protect our citizens better than other options out there,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.

Ultra-Lightweight Battery Gives Robinson R44 More Useful Load


True Blue Power recently announced the company’s TB17 (17 amp-hour) lithium-ion main ship battery is a standard option on Robinson Helicopter Company’s R44. Weighing only 16 pounds, the TB17 gives R44 operators an additional 13 pounds of useful load compared to the helicopter’s standard lead-acid battery.


The TB17 is ideal for use in extreme environments and engineered with a built-in automatic heater. It outperforms lead-acid and NiCad batteries in extreme temperatures, from -40°C to 70°C.


“With the TB17, your engine will start in the most demanding operations,” said Erik Ritzman, vice president of True Blue Power. “This battery delivers higher voltage during engine start, which means improved starter performance, less wear, and less maintenance. Even better, capacity checks are only required every two years and useful life is four times longer than any other battery.”
