LEADING THE WAY

IN AERIAL FIREFIGHTING

An aerial firefighting organization working to protect communities worldwide, 10 Tanker has been operating since 2006.

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 and delivers millions of gallons worldwide. It is our mission to push the boundaries of research and development to continue providing the most efficient aerial firefighting around the globe.
