The Air Force Commander of the MM visiting the French Navy Commander

16/01/14

The commander of the Navy Air Forces, rear-admiral Giorgio Gomma, visited the commander of the French Naval Aviation (Aeronautique Naval), rear-admiral Hervè de Bonnaventure, at the Aeronaval Station of Hyerès (France).

During the visit, among others, important common operational and technical issues were addressed, such as the use of the NH90 helicopter, recently entered into service for both the Navy and the Marine Nationale, and the UAS aircraft (Unmanned Aerial System) S-100 Camcopter, remotely piloted, recently also acquired by the Italian Navy.

The cooperation between the Navy and the Marine Nationale - and in particular between the two Naval Aviations - has a strong tradition and the entry into service of new technologically advanced aircraft such as the NH90 and the Camcopter represent an opportunity to strengthen more and more this collaboration.
