Humanitarian aviation, a complex job

Aviation is without doubt one of the most regulated sectors in the world, along with the nuclear and space industries! In addition to increasingly complex regulatory issues to ensure air transport reliability, there are difficulties in operating aircraft in difficult or even hostile environments including security, navigational aid, ground support and extreme weather conditions.

ASF-Belgium will share their know-how with you

ASF-B is also an expert in project cycle management for the management of humanitarian air transport.

ASF has therefore developed and adapted unique and innovative products such as participatory humanitarian management of local air transport or oblique aerial photography for local monitoring, both of which have received good feedback.

Definition of aviation components in a project

Your projects may require aerial work, such as aerial reconnaissance, locating refugee camps or ecological monitoring, or mapping by drone, with the specific authorisations that this requires in the country concerned. Based on our Terms of Service, ASF-Belgium will work with you to find an effective solution.
