Helicopter Services

Aerial Firefighting Services

Both the Huey and the Black Hawk compliment the other firefighting assets such as ground teams, fire bombers and other helicopters to save property and valuable assets from the destruction wrought by run-away fires. The typical configuration for the Huey is a 1000 litre bucket while the Black Hawk is capable of up to 3000 litres. Carrying capacities for all aircraft vary with temperature, wind, elevation and humidity but the Leading Edge team has what it takes to get the fire bosses the best assistance the industry has to offer.
