Airborne geophysical survey was started by 12th of October 2016 in Rwanda. EQUATOR (fig. 1) technology (Felix et al., 2014, Karshakov et al., 2017) was used. A survey was fully completed by 12th of April 2017. A survey at a scale 1:50 000 and infill works was completed on a square of 26 000 km2. Total survey volume is 57 718 line km. About half of the survey time was in the rain season. And half of the survey area are situated in the rough terrain conditions. Average productivity of airborne geophysical survey is 9620 line km per month. Detailed characteristics of EQUATOR system are described by Karshakov et al. (2017).
