Salvamento Marítimo adds AIS to its aerofleet

Spanish Safety at Sea organisation, Salvamento Maritimo (SM), the Department of the Government in charge of rescues in Spanish waters, will have its own airplane, named Isabel de Villena, dedicated to cover the southern mediterranean, and will be based in Valencia. SM will have 3 more aircraft very soon.

We are glad to know that this aircraft will count with an AIS receiver, confirming the importance of counting with such an identification system for SAR missions.
