Solution

Korea Forest Service (KFS) to own their own aerial assets — the S-64 Air Crane® helicopter, a greater and more powerful firefighting capacity than the rest of the KFS fleet.

FROM PREVIOUS S-64 OPERATIONS EXPERIENCED BY THE KOREA FOREST SERVICE, THE S-64E SHOWS OVER-WHELMING IMPROVED PERFORMANCE ON FOREST FIREFIGHTING USING A HELICOPTER.
