In addition to utilizing the 2014 Dubai Helishow to make our presence and services known to the industry, our focused theme is ‘virus and bacteria sanitization services’, especially in-light of the current EBOLA epidemic that the world is facing.

The topic of Ivan’s discussion will create awareness of rope access scenarios that happen at the height of over 500 meters off the ground. How many times you have to multiply the expected time to complete a regular job up there in the air and learn how violent can be the winds at that height, etc. You will learn the lessons from three fatal incidents in which seven helicopter flying crew members have died. One of them is when two Commandos have lost their lives by exiting out of the helicopter while flying more than 80km/h.
