A multimedia presentation which weaves together words and pictures, “Eyes in the Sky” will invite viewers back in time through historic photos and stories of the men and machines who first took the NYPD into the air.

Mr. Feuer, known for his informative and well received Rockaway history stories will guide his audience through the development of the NYPD’s airplane and helicopter units.

They will learn why New York City needed Air Cops in 1929 and view images of the NYPD’s first aircraft, a seaplane, and other early police planes. They will learn about the Homing Pigeon Caper of 1931, and also come to know the man who changed how the NYPD used aviation.

Mr. Feuer will bring his audience right up to the present day to view and learn about the police officers and equipment that serve New York City from the air even today. The 100th precinct community Council and Bernie Feuer invite you to join them as they take to the skies and take a flight through New York City Police aviation past and present.
