Wuhan's Public Security Bureau is flying more helicopter patrols around to ensure a safe and trouble-free environment for thousands of foreign athletes as the 2019 Military World Games opens in less than 200 days.
"We do have drones, but helicopters are still irreplaceable," said Zhou Bin, Instructor of the Flight Brigade of Wuhan Public Security Bureau. This brigade is China's first domestic police aviation flight brigade, which has successively accomplished a number of emergent missions.
"Helicopters have incomparable advantages over drones, especially in deterrent abilities. The helicopters we use can reach a maximum speed of 280 km/h. It can quickly help the police to gain rapid access and control in the designated area in case of emergency." Zhou said.
