About The Book

Veteran officer of the New York City Police Aviation Unit, Richard Rosenthal takes readers into the clouds as he shares details on the nerve-racking and life-saving missions of high-flying cops as they take crime fighting and rescue heroics to a thrilling new level.

With state-of-the-art helicopters that fly at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour, the policemen that take to the air to fight crime maneuver expertly between treacherous urban obstacles every day they report for duty.

Across the country, police aviation units swoop down from the skies, relentlessly pursuing the nation’s most dangerous criminals and performing breathtaking feats of rescue.

From New York to Los Angeles, Sky Cops tells the stories of the men and women who plucked terrified victims from the high-rise ruins of the World Trade Center bombing, responded miraculously to the Avianca air disaster, and foiled a helicopter assault on the White House.​
