Air Spray provides critical air support to control wildfires burning forests and threatening our communities.
what we do
Climate change is threatening the health of forests around the world. As temperatures rise, weather patterns and the availability of water also change, altering the ability of trees to survive. Added to this is hotter, drier summers increasing the risk and severity of forest fires.
Air Spray contracts with Provincial, State and Federal forest agencies to supply a variety of aircraft to support their efforts to control wildfire. Our aircraft fleet ranges from either wheel based or amphibious Air Tractor AT802 single engine Airtankers (SEATs) to heavy Airtankers such as the Lockheed L188 Electra and the BAE 146 jet aircraft. Many of our Airtankers are supported by high visibility lead planes or "bird dog" aircraft to direct the aerial fire fighting operations.
Air Spray is proud to have been protecting our forests and communities from wildfires for 48 years. Our service excellence in our industry is why we are continually relied upon to ensure our forests and communities are protected from wildfires for generations to come.
AIRTANKER AND TANK SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT
Air Spray is recognized as expert in not only Airtanker operation, but also Airtanker and tank development. Air Spray continually seeks to provide the best aircraft and retardant tank systems for our customers' fire control toolbox.
To this end, a large part of our operation is the conversion of aircraft to the role of Airtanker and the development of retardant tank systems that are most effective for wildfire suppression. Our design engineers and aircraft structures specialists provide a key role in the development of these new aircraft and tank systems.
