South St. Paul, Minnesota, February 27, 2019
Fire Boss is pleased to announce the sale of two sets of floats to R&M Aircraft Pty.Ltd., a long-standing customer based in New South Wales.
“We’ve flown thousands of hours in our first Fire Boss, scooping water and providing initial attack support for bush fires, and it’s time to expand our capabilities and grow our business” said Director and Chief Pilot, Justin Mace. “This system’s reliability gave us the confidence to acquire two more which will go into operation this year.”
R&M Aircraft is a family owned and operated fixed-wing Aerial Fire Fighting business servicing New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania since 1970. They began operating with a Fire Boss in 2009 to compliment their existing fleet. “It’s an outstanding performer that is changing the initial attack response within the industry. The success in the field is validated every time a customer makes another purchase” said Stephen Johnson, Director of Global Sales for Fire Boss LLC.
