RAA members held there January meeting at the San Bernardino County Sheriffs Aviation Division Hangar facility at San Bernardino Airport (SBD) on January 24th.
The San Bernardino County Sheriffs Aviation Division has an Aero squadron consisting of many volunteer pilots and observers. These volunteers provide many hours of time supporting this aerial law enforcement division. Some volunteers even provide their own aircraft to support the “Aero Squadron”. The Aero Squadron provides aerial support within the County of San Bernardino and some of its municipalities including Redlands. We have some pilots at Redlands Airport that volunteer for this important role.
RAA member and Aero Squadron Reserve Deputy volunteer, Dave Guthmiller, gave a very informative a presentation on the unit and a tour of the facility. Click on “RAA SBD Tour” to see some photos of the presentation and tour.
The San Bernardino County Sheriffs Aviation Division received 13,000+ calls for service in 2017. They have a first class operation at SBD. We can all rest well knowing that they know how to use aircraft to protect the public.
