Fire Boss Adds New Dimension to Aerial Firefighting Operations

OUR FLEET

The cornerstone of our fleet is the amphibious scooper air tanker, the Air Tractor AT-802F Fire Boss, which adds a new dimension of capability to firefighting operations.

We equip our Fire Bosses and wheeled single engine air tankers (SEATs) with custom-built innovations that make Dauntless Air a more efficient early strike tool, and better ally to the ground crews and fellow aerial forces depending on us.

 
 
 
Dauntless Air's Aerial Firefighting Team

OUR HISTORY

Since 1996, we have partnered with federal and state wildland agencies to fight fires across the United States and Canada. Our proven aerial firefighting strategies and unmatched safety track record have led to federal and state exclusive use and on-call contracts in the states of Minnesota, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, North Carolina, California and Oregon.

We secured our first federal contracts in 2009, with the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs and Bureau of Land Management. Today, we continue to partner with federal, state and private entities to protect people, land and property from the devastation of wildfires.

our vision

Our Vision is to win the war against wildfires. We believe this vision is achievable, but getting there is increasingly challenging given the shifting US wildfire landscape. Climate change, unhealthy landscapes and expanding human development in the wildland-urban interface are combining to create costlier fires that are burning and spreading much more quickly than they did 20 years ago. Faced with this reality, aerial firefighting strategies must be optimized for rapid, initial response to contain small blazes before they escape and become multi-acre, multi-million-dollar devastations.
