On their way may well be an over egged statement.The magic words in the official West Yorkshire Police statement are.....

‘In the months ahead, work will take place to achieve airworthiness and police operational certification before they can begin flying in support of police forces in England and Wales.

Months ahead

Achieve airworthiness

Police operational certification

None of these are positives that move things forward. The P68 is a 40 year vintage design.... it was certified years, decades, ago.... it has now effectively been decertified by recent activity..

The rumours abound that speak of massive negative variations in the performance capability that was presented to me just a couple of years ago. Climb performance, endurance, range.... who knows where the truth lies?
