Fire Fighting

Fire Fighting

During the summer months, fire can break out at any time, so we have our helicopters prepared for fire fighting at a moment’s notice.

Equipped with lightweight collapsible monsoon buckets and foam dispensers. Our pilots have experience in fighting all types of fires including forest, grass and scrub fires in New Zealand and Australia.

Our Squirrel and Lama Helicopters can both deliver 1000 litres per drop and the Longranger Helicopter can do 600 litres, these machines are proven on the fire ground.

All of our helicopters and crew are connected by air to ground communication and a risk assessment is performed to ensure the safety of all involved.

All of our pilots have the Lead Pilot Unit Standard and our Crews all have the Unit Standard for Fire Behaviour and Working around Fires.
