Training overview
Since April 2022, our company has not only been playing a role in the regional revitalization of Nishiizu Town, but also using helicopters as a means of transportation for town residents, and working to improve access to the metropolitan area and the area around Mt. Fuji. In addition to providing services such as helicopter tours and transportation, we are also working on the construction of a helipad, and we have recently conducted a disaster prevention drill in collaboration with Nishiizu Town.
■About training
On September 1st (Disaster Prevention Day), helicopters were used not only for sightseeing but also in emergencies, with the aim of contributing to quick support for disaster victims. We conducted training to use helicopters to smoothly transport doctors and other personnel and relief supplies in the event of a disaster.
Since there is a possibility of isolation in the area due to landslides, etc., we will be able to respond quickly by securing various means of transportation such as not only land transportation but also air transportation.
■Future outlook
In the future, we will continue to secure a variety of transportation methods tailored to the characteristics of the region, including not only helicopter excursion projects aimed at promoting tourism during normal times, but also the use of helicopters to transport and support personnel and supplies from the air in emergencies. We will continue to contribute to
