AIR TANKER OPERATIONS
Neptune’s fleet of BAe 146 aircraft is ideally suited for aerial wildland firefighting. The aircraft boasts a combination of slow flight characteristics and high cruising speed, as well as outstanding maneuverability. It delivers high operational safety and excellent field performance. The BAe 146 is self–sufficient and requires no special ground support allowing Neptune to operate out of airfields with minimal ground support services.
Once called to a fire, our aircraft can be loaded with up to 3000 gallons of fire retardant or water in as little as 8 minutes.
Neptune’s “Active Response” drop system is the most advanced retardant delivery system in the world – offering precision on every drop.
