As of Thursday, November 20, 2014, the 118 helicopter rescue service was extended to cover night operations.

The costs of compliance with the night service (telecameras, automatic alert service, automation of access, etc.) as well as service personnel are for the present being borne by the Aero Club while waiting for a better definition of economic aspects.
