Frontex’s Heron-type unmanned aerial vehicle, granted for the next six months to the Coast Guard, begins its patrols today from the military airport of Tympaki.

The remote-controlled aircraft is expected to carry out aerial surveillance in the area of ​​Crete and Rhodes, while it will also patrol the Ionian Sea as far as Corfu, with the aim of controlling irregular migration flows and organized crime at sea.

The autonomy of the aircraft is 16 hours and it will give a vivid picture to the staff of the GHETHA, the Unified Search and Rescue Coordination Center of the Coast Guard and the Frontex headquarters in Warsaw.

The presentation of the new aircraft took place earlier today in the presence of the head of the port corps and the director of Frontex.
