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.
