Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting in Italy
About the author
I am a student in Aerospace Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. For years I have been collecting information about Flight Safety. In particular, I am interested in Aircraft Accident Investigation and Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting. My personal library includes about 100 titles on these subjects. As a free-lance consultant, I took part in an award-winning project for an ARFF training structure at "Friuli - Venezia Giulia" Int'l Apt. Since May 2000 I am a member of the International Aviation Fire Protection Association (IAFPA). I have contibuted to the Aviation Fire Journal, an official medium of communication of the IAFPA. Please contact me if you have any comment or suggestion. Any additional information would also be welcome.
