Fast, efficient and flexible. Featuring Pratt & Whitney PW 150A turboprop engines, the Dash 8-400AT airtanker is the most modern airtanker in the world today. Featuring an external 10,000 litre tank with the ability to drop retardant, water, or foam/gel, the airtanker offers a proprietary Retardant Delivery System (RDS), capable of multiple, constant-flow coverage levels from a single, controlled-flow release over wildfires. Operable from most 5,000′ runways in remote or urban locations, the Dash 8-400AT performs both initial attack and support roles, offering tactical flexibility and consistent speed drops in steep, rugged terrain.
“Conair carefully selects the aircraft that make up its fleet to provide customers with a full range of aerial firefighting services. Each of our aircraft has been specifically designed to conduct aerial attacks against forest fires under extreme conditions.”
– Barry Marsden, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
