Fire Control

Aerotech NT uses its three purpose-built large capacity Air Tractor aircraft to suppress fires in the Northern Territory with fast and accurate results.

The powerful 1600 horsepower Air Tractor carries 3100 litres of water for firebombing and flies at a top speed of 280 kilometres per hour.

The aircraft’s fast ferry speeds, ability to work from unimproved airfields result in quick response and turnaround times critical for initial attack and sustained fire operations.

“We use Aerotech NT to spray large monocultures of Mimosa infestations and strategic buffer zones in the Daly and Moyle River Catchments, including Anson Bay."

“Aerotech NT are really good to work with and easy to contact. They are very efficient in getting data back to me so we can check if an area of Mimosa has been treated and later follow-up on the results of the work.”

Caroline Biggs - Project Manager for the Daly-Moyle Mimosa Project, Territory Natural Resource Management
