With several hundred hours myself in Diamond Aircraft, I can attest that they some of the easiest aircraft to fly on the market today. So how do you take a twin-engine SUV of sorts and convert that to a mission -ready, aerial surveillance aircraft for law enforcement? You turn to the experts at Air Bear Tactical Aircraft. The DA62-MPP is the first aircraft designed with the mission of Airborne Law Enforcement at its core. The DA62-MPP is an extraordinarily capable aircraft, when combined with its incredibly low fuel consumption results in a superior ISR platform costing less to operate than a single engine piston. Incredible as it may seem, the DA62 MPP is setting new standards for Airborne Law Enforcement. Powered by twin diesels burning JET-A, it consumes substantially less than 10 gph (total-both engines) at loiter speeds. “If you’re not in the air, you’re not there” means in the air, on station, ready to respond. The DA62- MPP now makes that possible without breaking the bank. Add the available “power by the hour” engine program and you can easily budget for future engine maintenance requirements as well. This multi-role, multi-mission aircraft is certified to carry a wide variety of payloads, custom tailored to your mission requirements. Supporting sensors up to 16.5” in diameter and weighing up to 143 pounds, the MPP can fly virtually any sensor commonly used in ALE today as well as up and coming technology. Its exceptional climb and sprint performance will get you on station quickly, and when at loiter speeds will keep you on station for hours. The DA62-MPP has redefined the meaning of “mission-ready”. 46 The BLUES The BLUES 47
