Air1 was bought to aid in all police matters, its main rolls are airiel observation, and the search and destroy of open air grow ops.

If equipped with FLIR, it might be able to actually get your plate... they can legally fly as high or low as necessary barring certain restrictions, and they assist ground units in persuits very often.

Basically- should Air1 see you speeding, they have to sick a ground unit on you to do anything about it... but they are equipped to follow you to your door and lead ground units to you, with photo evidence that the bike was accesively speeding... throw that in with the RCMP's spiffy new 911 ghost car and speeders dont stand a chance.

That 911 is pretty cool, to bad it has to be used against us. The helicopter is mainly used for chases where someone wont stop, and the initial finding of a speeder. If you think you can outrun it (well, youre a moron) because its cruise speed is about 120Knts (223Km's for you non aviation types) at its maximum weight. okay, so some of your bikes can out run it... should you find a perfectly straight road where your fuel will last you more then about 3 hours, you might actually do it. Otherwise, youre screwed.

In the OK we have Air3, which is Air1's more powerful big brother, but she spends more time hunting open air grows and helping with other shit.

When you think about it, all they are doing is trying to reduce the number of RIP threads on here.

Actually by the sounds of it, they are trying to reduce the number of grow ops. People can die, but if taxes aren't being paid then thats a priority! lol :laughing

+1 :imwithstu
I am a firm believer that the Govt. enforces seatbelt laws so we stay alive just so they can collect more taxes off our backs when we survive an accident.

That's when you head for the airport bypass, or a tunnel....

The chopper won't give a shit unless you're doing 200km/h or outrunning a land vehicle. It's not up 24x7. It would be awfully flukey for it to spot you without being tipped by a ground vehicle. It's main traffic job is to track ground vehicles when ground pursuit is too dangerous or impractical. It is equipped with a mega-powerful spotlight, awesome camera equipment and infra-red. So if you are running around at night, and you outrun the ground pursuit you may never even know it's there as you park your hot bike in a bush somewhere. It doesn't have to get close to you to keep track of you and it's a fairly quiet chopper.

Basically - if you outrun ground pursuit, you'd better pull out your heat-proof blankey and toss it over the bike....you're probably still going to get nailed.

Tunnels won't help because they'll know you went in but the airport isn't a bad plan because they aren't allowed to fly into that zone - though they may get special permission if the path is clear.
