The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs' Office of Aviation (also known as the INL Air Wing) oversees a combined fleet of more than 150 active airplanes and helicopters operating in some of the most challenging, remote, austere, and dangerous countries in the world. INL’s fleet of aircraft flies over 51,000 hours annually in support of missions related to counternarcotics, counterterrorism, border security, law enforcement and embassy transportation. The Air Wing operates in several countries in South America, the Middle East, and South Central Asia on a continuous basis as well as at other temporary locations as required by the Department. INL’s Air Wing has robust logistics and maintenance capabilities that provide services to the overseas operating locations and ensures high aircraft availability rates. INL received the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Aviation Program Award for outstanding achievements in aircraft administration, operations, maintenance, training, and safety in 2000, 2005 and 2011.
