Spanish creators of an innovative UA gliding fire bomber or in their words Autonomous Propulsed Gliding Containers (APGC) Nitrofirex. Will be showing their craft during the 10th Aerial Fire-fighting held at France’s Academy for Fire, Rescue and Civil Protection Officers (ENSOSP). The Expo takes place today and tomorrow (10th/11th April 2013).
This conference and exhibition aimed at the Aerial Firefighting community will bring together international government procurement and operational officers, civil organisations, international manufacturers, operators and service providers to discuss and debate the latest techniques, technologies and platforms available to tackle the specific and persistent threat of wildfires.
The event will include a 1 ½ day conference, supporting exhibition, static display and live flying demonstrations. A Drink’s Reception hosted by Russian Helicopters will be open to all event attendees on day one of the conference. This Drink’s Reception will take place in the Exhibition Room of the venue from 17:30, immediately after all conference sessions.
An aerial firefighting demonstration will be held nearby, working in conjunction with ground firefighting elements. All Aerial Firefighting attendees will have the opportunity to watch these demonstrations from an elevated position with a panoramic view.
Another step forward for civil UA operations in Europe.
