  1. Two King Air 350CER Aircraft For U.S Customs & Border Protection
    The United States Custom & Border Protection placed an order for two Textron Aviation Beechcraft King Air 350CER aircraft. The units will be utilized to safeguard the country's homeland and will join a growing existing fleet of King Air aircraft. After mission modifications by Sierra Nevada Corporation, these two Multi-role Enforcement Aircraft (MEA) aircraft will join a fleet of 23 other King Air 350s.
  2. "We are honored the King Air 350CER continues to be the aircraft of choice to fill this critical mission need for the CBP," said Bob Gibbs, vice president, Special Mission Sales." These aircraft can fly six-hour missions and can deploy to hot spots where multi-sensor patrols assist both ground and marine agents to detect, interdict and prevent acts of terrorism as well as the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States." When these aircraft go on surveillance and patrol, sophisticated equipment and sensors will help aid the mission. CBP (Customs Border Protection) MEA (Multi-role Enforcement Aircraft) is equipped with a sophisticated array of active and passive sensors, technical collection equipment and satellite communications capabilities that can be deployed for ground interdiction operations, air-to-air intercept operations and medium-range maritime patrols. Four crew run the aircraft type, two pilots and two highly-trained senor operators.
