Aerial Fire Suppression View More Photos
With decades of experience, Helicopter Transport Services is called upon each year to provide these services to fire suppression agencies in the United States, Canada, Australia and elsewhere in the world.

Our Sikorsky CH-54A and CH-54B Skycrane Helitankers are the premier aerial fire suppression solution, offering more water-dropping capability per flight hour than any other aviation system.  Our purpose-built tanks hold up to 2,600 gallons (9,750 litres) of water, refillable in 45 seconds in as little as 18 inches of water.  The computer-controlled delivery system can systematically deploy water or other suppression agents at varying levels of coverage, as certified by the United States Forest Service Interagency Airtanker Board.

In addition to our large Helitankers, Helicopter Transport Services operates a diversified fleet of helicopters well-suited for numerous fire suppression applications, including long-line water-bucketing, long-line logistics support, aerial ignition and fire rehabilitation.
