Over the past four years, BAC Helicopters has established itself as a preferred supplier of fire-fighting support helicopters to the KZN region.
With the fire season having started on 01 July, BAC has deployed two helicopters with fire fighting equipment between two operational bases in KZN. Experienced crew members are stationed with each of these helicopters, on standby in case of a fire outbreak.
The helicopters we are using for the 2020 season, are both from the Airbus Helicopters stable, namely the AS350-B2 and EC130-B4. These two helicopter models are well proven through-out the aviation industry to be strong and reliable workhorses, which coupled with BAC service excellence, ensures that the communities which our fire-fighting helicopters support, can rest assured.
