Description

From the text: 'The pilot on any aerial ignition operation is presented with an extremely difficult task. It has been CDF's experience that having a trained helitack captain on board, acting as the lighting supervisor, reduces significantly the burdon on the pilot, while adding significantly to the safety and efficiency of the command and control function of the operation.'
