POMONA - Rockland County's emergency services helicopter is able to fly again after a two-year overhaul to upgrade its equipment.

The helicopter, built in 1974, now has a new tail section, paint job, ultraviolet cockpit glass and a high-tech radio. It was also given a more powerful engine.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day (R) says the money to upgrade the helicopter came from forfeiture money, obtained from criminals.

Pilots will be taking the helicopter on a series of test flights, but it is expected to be back in full service shortly.
