Extinction and control of forest fires

The helicopter is fundamental in the prevention and extinguishing of forest fires for their mobility, flexibility and capacity in the transport of ground brigades, accurately water release and in areas of difficult access. We have the equipment and proper helicopters to realize any operations in a safely and efficiently way. In the control and suppression of forest fires, we have flown more than 3,300 hours in the last three summer seasons.

To offer a precise and effective work, our helicopters are equipped with bambi buckets of last generation, communications radios, VHF/FM and UHF, GPS equipment and satellite phones. This optimizes the safety of the works to perform and ensure a permanent contact with the crews and accuracy in the monitoring and the location of each aircraft.
