Large Airtankers

At Conair, we design and develop the best next generation airtankers in the world today.

Throughout our long history of aerial firefighting, Conair has introduced 15 new aircraft types and 150 individual aircraft to the global aerial firefighting effort.

Our RJ85 and Q400MR type one and type two land based airtankers have been designed and engineered in house at Conair at our Abbotsford facilities. We have incorporated our latest Advanced Retardant Delivery Systems technology, and our 47 years of wildfire domain experience with 100% OEM support throughout the design and certification process to produce, what is best described as a purposed engineered airtanker.

OEM support does not end with certification. The RJ85 and the Q400 MR airtankers have a projected service life in excess of 25 years. Our team of engineers at Conair are working closely with the OEM now and plan to continue to do so during the entire service life of these aircraft.

Our goal is a 100% serviceability rate.

Conair offers these aircraft to the wildfire community on either multiyear service contracts that can be custom tailored to the agencies specific needs, or for sale to government fire control agencies that prefer an ownership model.

Let the experienced staff at Conair help you evolve your aerial firefighting program with the introduction of these two, exciting next generation firefighting assets.
