South Korea will use hybrid fire-fighting drones

| |

Jeju Island is one of the most popular vacation spots in South Korea. To assist rescue teams on the island, Korean Air (KA) offered two hybrid-powered drones for a fire-fighting project on Jeju Island.

The hybrid technology features an engine that combines internal combustion with battery power. This enables longer flight time and provides enhanced weather resistance for the aircraft.

The two drones will be used to monitor acciddent and fire sites, assist rescue teams searching for missing people in remote areas, and to monitor remotely for accident prevention.
