NLR PD showing off new “copper chopper”

This is an unmanned drone. It is a para-military aircraft. It is the kind of thing used in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is a high dollar toy and another North Little Rock boondoggle to put on the trophy case right next to the tug boat – whatever that’s called.

A source just dropped me this note.

….. Officer Jake House of the NLRPD … confirm[s] their appearance at this month’s EAA Ch 165 lunch on Saturday August 22nd. He will be bringing the department’s drone “Copper Chopper” and will be discussing its flight operations for local aviators.
The NLRPD is the only law enforcement organization in the country to be approved by the FAA to operate an unmanned aerial vehicle, so it should be an interesting presentation.
