La Gomera now has a multi-functional helicopter stationed at the airport above Playa de Santiago for the summer months. The chopper is equipped for rescue missions and can carry a load of 1500 litres of water in a special attachment for firefighting purposes when needed. It arrived last Friday and will remain in La Gomera on stand-by until October. For next year it is planned that the same helicopter will be on the island for six months from May. The funding came from Canarian government.
