Mission 3 – Protection from West Nile
AIR 1 are nominated for many mosquito and pest control projects by Government backed counties in Greece.
A West Nile scare in 1 county meant that the following year, evasive action had to be taken. Air 1 were nominated to ensure that the following year, the outbreak would not happen.
Around 1000 hectares of land were sprayed in under 6 hrs of operation, marking another step towards the prevention of West Nile disease and other deadly or harmful diseases from mosquito.
The low operating costs and unique maneuverability of Air 1’s S-300 mean that tight spots are not missed, awkward shaped land is adequately covered and non-accessible areas are protected also.
