Fire Lighting

Our R-44 Raven ll helicopters are ideally suited to conduct fire-lighting activities due their lower operating costs.  There is no need for larger more expensive turbine aircraft, due to the minimum payload required to be carried.

Outback Helicopters Ltd has a purpose built fire-lighter, with variable speed control.  This gives us the ability to vary the amount of Luma Gel being applied in different circumstances.

Our experienced Agricultural pilots are skilled in Fire Lighting and the art required to ensure the burn remains safe and under control.
