Aerial Firefighting

Heli Aviation provides exclusive-use Type III helicopter services for the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management and local State Parks in locations throughout the United States. All Type III helicopters are inspected and carded for U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Forest Service call-when-needed contracts. We’re dedicated to providing 24/7 maintenance support and meticulous preparation. Our aircraft are equipped for a variety of natural resource missions and are maintained to the highest standard to meet Department of Interior (DOI) and Forest Service requirements.

From dropping water and retardant to carrying cargo and crews, Heli Aviation’s fire fighting capabilities are broad and our experience deep. We use collapsible Bambi Buckets that fit into each helicopter for easy transport to the fire. Heli Aviation also carries a full set of lifting gear and safety equipment to cover all contingencies at fires.

We operate as an autonomous team but with the ability and genuine desire to work with other operators to achieve the best result, extinguishing the fire as quickly as possible.
