As licensed pilots, trained troopers began flying speed
enforcement missions in the late 1950s. Today, the State Patrol Air
Support Unit has Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft based in Madison, Eau
Claire and Green Bay ready to fly missions statewide. In addition to
traffic enforcement, officers in aircraft have a tremendous vantage
point for surveillance, search and rescue, and other missions.
