The reader interested in the defense against forest fires and, in particular, the managers of the extinction of forest fires and of the air coordination, will find inescapable the reading of this book, given the extensive and valuable information that it contains, not disclosed so exhaustively so far in the literature. The book gathers the history of the use of aerial means for the extinction of fires in Spain, the conditions and characteristics of their use and the detailed description of the operations with fixed-wing and rotating-wing means of each one of the main types of media, this being a prominent chapter, since the detailed information collected is key to achieving management efficiency.
