AeroBrigham Press Release | June 12, 2024

Estimated reading time 4 minutes, 52 seconds.

AeroBrigham, the helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility, announced its significant contribution to the new docuseries Chopper Cops, which is set to premiere on Paramount+ on June 18, 2024.

Featuring state-of-the-art helicopters, carefully designed and meticulously configured by AeroBrigham, the series showcases the high-stakes work of the Marion County Florida Sheriff’s Department’s elite aviation unit.

The Marion County aviation unit, featured in Chopper Cops, is one of the most active and well-respected aviation law enforcement units in the country. Widely recognized for their multi-mission capability, this exceptional team excels in law enforcement, aerial firefighting, and helicopter rescue operations.

AeroBrigham said it is proud to support such a distinguished unit and is honored to enhance their ability to perform diverse and critical missions with unmatched efficiency and security.

“We set out to create aircraft that make a difference in people’s lives…[aircraft] that can save a life or find a child who’s lost and separated from her mother. Never in our wildest dreams did we think our work would end up leading a television series like Chopper Cops,” said David Brigham, co-founder of AeroBrigham.

“The real heroes are the deputies of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Without their skills, flipping switches and pulling pitch to keep them in the air, these helicopters are just hangar art.”

Located in Decatur, Texas, AeroBrigham has been at the forefront of helicopter completion, engineering and maintenance.

The helicopters featured in Chopper Cops were built with precision and care at the North Texas facility, ensuring the highest standards of safety and performance.

The AeroBrigham team also provided the innovative camera rigging solutions that enabled the installation of advanced in-chopper cameras, essential for capturing the immersive, heart-pounding footage seen in the series.

AeroBrigham is owned and operated by brothers David and Danny Brigham, proud Army veterans who bring their military expertise and dedication to every project.

Their commitment to quality and service is reflected in their support of the airborne law enforcement community and the everyday heroes who operate these aircraft to protect and serve their neighborhoods.

As an official partner of V1 Productions, the production company behind Chopper Cops and Straight and Level, AeroBrigham said the company is honored to contribute to a series that highlights the bravery and skill of law enforcement professionals.

“Our mission is to ensure that the helicopters that come out of our shop not only perform at their best, but also provide the critical functionality needed for effective airborne law enforcement operations,” said Danny Brigham.

“Being TV executives was never in the plan, but our collaboration with V1 Productions grants us the ability to give back to the aviation community, and hopefully inspire the next generation of aviators.”

David Brigham stated: “We are incredibly proud to support the airborne law enforcement community and the brave men and women who fly these aircraft in service of their communities. Our goal at AeroBrigham is to ensure that every helicopter we build and maintain meets the highest standards of safety and reliability, reflecting our commitment to those who depend on them every day.”
