L.A. Co. Sheriff's: H3 Sea King/ Air Rescue 5
[DVD #105]
L.A. Co. Sheriff's: H3 Sea King/ Air Rescue 5 is a detailed looked at one of the most elite helicopter operations in the world. The L.A. Co. Sheriff's Air Rescue 5 helicopters operate in some of the most challenging environments in the world, from jagged mountain up to 10,000 feet, to mega city high rises, to the sea while serving over 10 million citizens. With continued limited budgets the L.A. Co. Sheriff's Department does not have the luxury to order new aircraft for their air rescue program, which with their former fleet of helicopters cobled together since the programs inception in 1953 has saved thousands of lives over the past 50. Their former Sikosky S58 limitied power and age dictated time for a heavier and more mission versatile helicopter. Putting together a team of Special Enforcement Bureau/Emergency Detail (name of the Sheriff's Deputy SWAT Paramedic team) and Aero Bureau (name of the Sheriff's air unit) which workd side by side in the air rescue program sought to find a replacement for their aged fleet. Looking at the cost of new helicopters with the power and size would run up to ten million dollars a piece. Seeking alternatives they found the Sikorsky H3 Sea King helicopters, former military helicopters long ago sent into retirement by the Navy to the "bone yard" in the desert's of Arizona.The heavy lift capacity of the H3 Sea King would make these an ideal choice. And for a fraction of the cost of a new aircraft the team was able to acquire the helicopters and bring a total upgrade and moderization of the aircraft for less then two million dollars a helicopter.
L.A. Co. Sheriff's: H3 Sea King/Air Rescue 5 takes you on a behind the scenes look at this program. You will join this team of professionals as they these dedicated personnel put their skills into action.
