  • There are over 210,000 wildfires each year, worldwide; and more than 70,000* in the United States alone.

  • Governments are under tremendous fiscal constraints and are unable to purchase & maintain specially configured, single mission aircraft to meet the demand required to suppress wildfires.

  • A roll-on roll-off system utilizing standard cargo aircraft procedures would exponentially expand the availability of aircraft and crew worldwide

  • Higher altitude drops would enable full 24 hour fire suppression and allow for round the clock suppression. "The fire no longer owns the night"
