Helitanker Ready For Fire Deployment

ericksonfirecopterTo enhance rapid initial air attacks on wildfires in Los Angeles County, the Fire Department has renewed their lease for an S-64E Helitanker from Erickson Air-Crane, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

With a 2,500 gallon tank that can drop water, retardant, or foam mix, the Erickson Air-Crane S-64E Helitanker is one the world’s most versatile and powerful, aerial fire suppression tools.


A ram scoop hydrofoil allows the Helitanker to refill from fresh water and sea water sources in less than 45 seconds. A flexible hose snorkel features a high pressure impeller and can draw water from any water source 18 inches or deeper as fast as 45 seconds.
