Alaska Fire Fighting Helicopter Service
Fighting fires is difficult work, and you want every advantage you can get. While crews fight from the ground, Norther Pioneer Helicopters fire fighting teams work from the skies to help get the fires under control.
Fire fighting in Alaska is a yearly event and often happens in remote and hard to get to places. Moving men and equipment is a must to be able to effectively contain and extinguish forest fires. That is our specialty. NPH has decades of experience in helicopter fire fighting services working with state and federal agencies in some of the most demanding and challenging environments.
Our heavy hauling helicopter capabilities gives us the edge in fighting fires. We can haul up to 4,000 pounds of water per trip and drop it with great accuracy. Our skilled crew know how to expedite turns to maximize drops her hour and minimize flight time.
