Also the medium-size helicopters, such as the PZL Sokol and the Bell 412, have become relevant. The latter has incorporated a live image transmission system, the only fitted with this innovative technology for the present season. Supporting the helicopters in Chile will be the Air Tractor 802.

For this important deployment of air assets, more than 200 Chileans and Spanish support personnel will work exhaustively for the perfect functioning of the campaign including administrative, pilots, co-pilots, aircraft maintenance technicians, supervisors and the structure itself of the company.

The aircraft will be distributed in more than twenty-five base camps and will be operative until April of 2018.
