The family SME Cicaré, from Saladillo, province of Buenos Aires, continues its international expansion: with technical support from INTI, it was able to complete the tests in order to obtain, in Germany, the type certificate to export a two-seat ultralight helicopter.

The arrangement of the spray system, ahead of the propeller of this ALS, and the configuration of the aircraft reduce the formation of vortices in the application pattern, while the type and arrangement of the nozzles ensures uniformity of the discharge. This is the Aero Agro AA-100 from Fumicaña Ltda, an aircraft assembled in Colombia that allows precise fumigations at ultra-low discharge volume.
