Omaha City Council approves move of OPD Helicopters to Blair

BLAIR –  Those of us living near the Blair Airport will regularly hear the sound of a helicopter– the Omaha City Council this week approved moving Omaha’s Police Helicopters and Pilots to the Blair Airport.  Omaha Police representatives say the move would not impact public safety in their city, saying the majority of the helicopter usage is in the Northwest section, which has a denser population that south Omaha.  Moving the helicopters from the North Omaha airport to Blair is expected to occur this coming spring.
