San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Partners with


EL CAJON, Calif., April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has selected GovDeals, the leading online auction platform for government agencies and educational institutions to sell their surplus assets , to offer three former county patrol helicopters used for search and rescue for sale to the public.

These helicopters are the first round of auctions from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, which joins many other aircraft sellers using the GovDeals marketplace to offer aircraft and aviation equipment to the public. Each helicopter is currently on auction until April 28and and San Diego County is asking all potential buyers to pay a $5,000 refundable deposit before placing a bid on any of the helicopters.

The helicopters up for auction include a 2000 MD 369 FF helicopter, a 1981 MD 369 D helicopter and a 2007 Bell 407 helicopter, with detailed logbooks available upon inspection. From this sale, the county plans to use the funds to purchase additional helicopters of the same make and model as other aircraft currently in service in San Diego County.

“Our number one goal has always been the safety of our pilots; we perform service and maintenance regularly and a full set of maintenance records are available for buyers to inspect. We made the decision to sell these helicopters to increase pilot safety and better align all county-owned aircraft so that our pilots only need to be trained on one model,” says Darrell A. Strohl, Lt. Sheriff’s Department for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. “They are still airworthy and would make a great addition to someone’s aircraft division.” GovDeals supports the sustainability goals of its sellers by helping them extend the life of their assets, with a focus on zero waste through reuse and recycling.

Scheduled inspections are scheduled for April 20and and serious buyers are encouraged to inspect the aircraft and logbooks before placing bids.
