ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The Kurdistan Region’s Ministry of Interior dedicated four traffic police helicopters to the province of Sulaimani on Wednesday to be used to navigate and monitor the mountains or to help with fighting fires.

“This was decided by the interior minister. Each province will be sent 4 helicopters. Hopefully, we will send 4 more helicopters to Duhok, too, for the same purpose and duty,” Brigadier General Khalid Ali, pilot team supervisor at general directorate of transportation, told Rudaw.


The helicopters landed at Sulaimani International Airport. Two helicopters are designed for civil defense, while the other two are traffic and emergency response ones.


“These helicopters play a good role. They use it for monitoring and traffic purposes in the world. We already have a helicopter provided by interior ministry. But these ones have more options in them. They are fitted with a number of things, like a light which enables you to monitor mountains at night or distinguish a fire in a desert,” Brigadier General Hussen Fayzullah, pilot team supervisor at Sulaimani transportation, told Rudaw.


They were bought from a European company nearly two years ago, but delayed in handing them over to the province due to pilot training.
