Aerial Fire Detection

DAFS aircraft and flight crew provide the first level in the fire response system – Aerial Fire Detection. 

Our large fleet of specialty aerial observation aircraft are the cornerstone of the planned wildfire  detection and reporting system in Ontario.

The right aircraft for the job of aerial fire detection – that is our fleet of Skymaster 337s which are one of the few aircraft in the world that were designed specifically as an aerial observation platform. 

These fast high wing aircraft provide very efficient wildfire finding services with excellent visibility, ability to cover a great deal of the landscape in a short time and yet allow for safe low level assessments of wildfires so best information gets to the fire centre for speedy dispatch of fire fighting resources.
