GippsAERO recently attended the ALEA (Airborne Law Enforcement Association) conference in Reno, NV. In addition to exhibiting at the conference, GippsAERO sponsored the Fixed-Wing Award.
The award celebrates the professionalism and dedication of an individual without whom many police operations would have failed or not been able to conclude while maintaining the safety of other officers and the general public. (Photo – Sgt. Troy Leckie (left) and David Wheatland GippsAERO)
