This chart shows the gallons of water the Fire Boss is able to deliver to a fire based on the distance between the fire and the nearest scoopable water source. It assumes that the Fire Boss has 2.5 hours of fuel endurance including a 30-minute reserve (U.S. Fire Agency Minimum Requirement). It also assumes scooping loads begin at approximately 600 gallons and approach 800 gallons as fuel burns and that no foam is carried onboard.

Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement performance data for both the 1,600 hp Single Seat and 1,600 hp Dual Seat aircraft were based on flight test results accumulated during the certification program for the 1,600 hp Dual Seat aircraft only. Operational experience has shown that the performance for the 1,600 hp Single Seat aircraft is superior to both the 1,600 hp Dual Seat and the 1,350 hp Single Seat aircraft.
