Conservation Missions

Each mission lasts an average of 10 days, 20 flight hours and costs 8,000 euros. We carry out between 15 and 20 missions per year.

The use of light aircraft is a cost and time effective way to cover long distances in vast landscapes, especially where there are no roads or ground access is limited, which is very common in wildlife areas.

Ecological monitoring and research

We collect data on ecosystems and wildlife populations to help support their protection and restoration.

Protected area management & creation
We conduct flights and aerial surveys to support management actions for wildlife areas and to help develop long-term strategies.
