    I believe that this helicopter can be converted to an air ambulance. Based on its max speed, it should be excellent for catching bad guys in all types of scenarios.

    Great chopper!

    dalizzard- Your are very right it does look like ariwolf. The Airwolf Chopper was a Bell 222. This is the newer version with more powerful engins, bell electronics. Its a step up. But it looks to be the same bodey as the 222.

    A great aircraft but its primary use is for air ambulance not police work I feel the Eurocopter is a better source for law enforcement use.

    One word...AIRWOLF! This is a sexy-looking aircraft. If I ever won the lottery, this would become my new daily-driver! A newer version to the older Bell 222, this aircraft has a four-bladed rotor, updated avionics ("glass cockpit"), more powerful and efficient turbine engines, and can be outfitted for just about any LE function, from chasing bad guys to hauling casualties to search and rescue.

    If I were on MTV CRIBS you would see this in my 1 of 3 landing pads which is next to the run way. Oh BTW that is after I win the POWERBALL.

    Excellent patrol and rescue vehicle. I flew in a Bell Jet Ranger with The Colorado River Indian Tribes who got one from the US Army and we used it for rescue and Drug interdiction and Surviellance. Very steady aircraft.

    Having flown the Bell 222 for many years...I have had a few short flights in a Bell 430.. what a HUGE improvement in power and performance over the Bell 222 series.
