Fire Fighting

Fire Fighting

During the summer months fire can break out at any time. We have our helicopters and crew prepared for fire fighting at a moment’s notice.

Our pilots have experience in fighting all types of fires including forest, grass and scrub fires in New Zealand and Australia.

Equipped with lightweight collapsible monsoon buckets and foam dispensers, our Squirrel Helicopters can deliver 1000 liters per drop.

Our Bell Huey Helicopter can deliver an impressive 1500 liters per drop, 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.

Our pilots have the Lead Pilot Unit Standard and our Crews all have the Unit Standard for Fire Behavior and Working around Fires.
