Firefighting work on forest fire extinguishing in Turkey
Two-year firefighting activity on forest fire extinguishing in Turkey with participation of our Aviation Company is coming to its end. The crews of four Mi-8 MTV-1 (Мi-17-1V) helicopters, based in Karabik, Iskanderun, Manavgat and Milas, performed more than 2,100 emergency alert flights and logged 720 hours.
All pilots and engineers of the Aviation Company traditionally focus on the quality and safety of aviation operations. Thanks to their professionalism and efficiency, the task of the Ministry on Emergency Situations of Turkey was successfully carried out and destruction of thousands of hectares of green woodlands, mainly in hard-to-get mountainous regions of the country, was prevented.
