First choice in fire suppression

Kestrel is a leader in the aviation firefighting industry, having evolved from the early days of operating light single-turbine helicopters with water buckets to the current powerful fleet of medium helicopters, Aircranes and Blackhawks with advanced delivery systems.

Kestrel is committed to developing innovative systems and techniques. The Conair Belly Tanks installed in Kestrel’s Bell helicopters, together with its proprietary multiple retardant foam and gel injection systems, provide fire agencies with leading-edge delivery systems for fire suppression.

In conjunction with Emergency Management Victoria, Kestrel has pioneered aerial fire suppression and hover fill by night and more recently, entered a partnership with Firehawk Helicopters Inc., introducing the Blackhawk to the domestic firefighting contract services.
