Conair Purchases 7 Dash
Conair Group Inc. (Conair), operating the largest fixed- wing fleet of firefighting aircraft in the world, is pleased to announce the purchase of seven Dash 8- 400 aircraft for conversion to airtankers, engineered specifically for aerial firefighting.
“Countries are facing escalating wildfire behaviour. And many are challenged by limited aerial firefighting resources or aging fleets in need of modernization to ensure the firetruck in the sky is ready to dispatch when the call comes,” shares Matt Bradley, President and CEO of Conair. “Supply of modern, large airtankers is limited. Our purchase gives us the ability to support countries as they adapt to the changing wildfire environment, continuing to protect their citizens and resources using air assets.”
