View of the ATR 42 and Falcon 20 belonging to Safire, the French facility for airborne research, on the tarmac at the Toulouse-Blagnac airport. The Falcon 20 is a plane used for multidisciplinary research in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere, in areas such as remote sensing, chemistry and microphysics. The ATR 42 is a plane that has been specially modified for scientific use. It is perfect for taking measurements in the middle troposphere, including measurements relating to chemistry, remote sensing, microphysics and turbulence. Safire is a unit dedicated to climatic and environmental research, satellite validation and aeronautical development. It uses planes for the benefit of scientific research as part of experimental campaigns.
