LEADING THE WAY
IN AERIAL FIREFIGHTING
10 Tanker has been operating since 2006 as one of the only fleets in the world with newly developed VLAT's
(Very large air tankers). Our DC-10’s lead the way in performance and efficiency, with the capability to deliver 9,400 gallons of fire retardant within 8 seconds and up to a mile long. Creating greater containment lines, in less time saving both wildlife and resources.
Year after year 10 Tanker responds to hundreds of wildfires, while delivering millions of gallons of retardant world wide. It is our mission to push the capabilities of aerial firefighting, and go above and beyond for those we serve to protect.
A 2020 MILE STONE!
10 Tanker hits a company milestone.
On Sunday Sep 27th, with the last flight of the day T-914 delivered a load to the Glass fire that put our North American total for the season past 10 million gallons of retardant delivered.
10 Tankers has had a very busy year, a year that really began last October with fires in California and went on to include our efforts in Australia. The pace never really stopped before returning home for the busiest fire season we’ve ever had.
It’s never easy to keep that pace, but thanks to our pilots, maintenance crews, materials and office staff's hard work and dedication over the last 12 months, we've hit a new company milestone having the most successful year yet.
