The equipment problem. Typically, the largest deficiency and complaints within the aerial fire fighting community towards the supporting FBO's are generally the lack of equipment capable of handling the high fuel and oil volumes required to support the Large Radials,DC,6&7 & P2 series, CL215, and even the DC10 and 747 Tankers during a fire bust. We "set the standard" for other FBO bases and assist as needed offsite as the need dictates.
The equipment solution. Our tanker base support program is designed to assure effecient and timely replenishing of you fuel supply, oil, etc. We as well have the equipment on hand to help with your scheduled and unscheduled maintenance issues, engine changes etc. Ask us first, we most likely have it, and your welcome to it!
Mobile towable equipment=better manpower utilization!
All our trucks are equipped with pintle towing hitches allowing for a "1 man" fuel and oil service to better utilize everyones manpower during peak operations, typically being able to service everyones wishes, Jet-A or Avgas, without the necessity of rotational fueling.
Custom made oil carts. We utilize our own custom designed and metered oil carts in the delivery of W120, 120, 25W60 etc. at rates in excess of 10gpm. Light enough to easily manuever around and under the aircraft during concurrent fueling operations. Easily re-loadable by hand cart, forklift or pickup and inventory on hand to survive the largest busts.
