Fire Suppression

When Fire Strikes, you need fast and efficient service. That's where Buffalo Fire Suppression excels. We stand by our commitment to provide aviation related fire suppression support, equipment and staff anytime, anywhere you may need us.

For over 45 years, Buffalo Airways has continually operated under the same ownership. With a fleet of 26 mostly heavy aircraft, our reputation as a safe and efficient operation is something you can depend on. Buffalo Airways offers what no other fire suppression service can - a diversified fleet that operates on land or water, year-round, not just during the regular fire season.

Buffalo's tanker fleet consist of DC-4's, CL-215's and the two Lockheed Electra tankers C-FIJX and C-FBAQ with installed 8 door retardant tanks that can deliver up to per drop. They are fully equipped with an Envelope Protection System to enhance pilot safety and awareness during mission.

Buffalo Airways also operates and maintains eight Air Tractor AT-802F Fire Bosses for the Government of the Northwest Territories which protect the forests, communities and mine sites in a forested area covering 614,000 ha2.
