Saving Lives

Congratulations to Air Spray, receipients of the 100th set of Fire Boss floats.

RIGHT ON THE MONEY

Whether leasing or purchasing, the Fire Boss is the most economical solution available. Deploy an entire fleet for the cost of one twin engine water scooper.

ANSWER THE CALL. FAST.

Respond to fire starts fast with 150 knots ferry speed and less than 15 minutes dispatch time or pre-position in remote areas with minimal infrastructure.

STAY AND FIGHT

Depart from the base loaded and then stay on site scooping water from available water sources like rivers, lakes and bays. Scoops 800 gallons in just 15 seconds!

Amphibious Scooping Single Engine Tanker

Wildfires pit time and nature against fire crews. The Fire Boss scooping single engine tanker helps you gain the upper hand. That’s because no other air tanker attacks fires with the tempo, agility, and effectiveness of the Fire Boss.

Deploy in Fleets

Deploy a fleet of 3 Fire Bosses for the cost of one twin-engine scooper!

Close Ground Crew Support

The Fire Boss is precise enough to drop close to working ground crews to help knock a fire out.

Remote Operations

The Fire Boss is a rugged and extremely reliable air tanker that does not require a big airport or an extensive infrastructure to keep it flying.

See the Fire Boss scooping mechanism and fire gate in action!

Case Study

The Minnesota DNR

In 2015 the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources replaced two aging CL-215 tankers with a contract for four Fire Bosses and two Air Tractor 802s on land gear from Appleton, MN based fire-fighting service Dauntless Air (formerly Aero Spray).
