It's a difficult time for Oregon locals, as fires continue to rage. Tankers 910 & 912 are currently fighting several fires in the state including the Alameda Fire in Medford, the Obenchain Fire, and South Obenchain Fire. As we continue our work to contain the blazes we will keep you informed.

Our thoughts go out to those effected.

Whoa🔥🔥@calfirel2881meu The impressive fire behavior, coordination, cooperation, and hard work by so many has been matched by equally impressive air operations. The aircraft combat the fire from the air, while our firefighters engage against the flames on the ground.

10 TANKER AIR CARRIER incorporated in 2002 to research, develop and operate fixed wing jet aircraft for aerial firefighting. Our founders believed a higher standard of capability and safety could be brought to the industry by incorporating airline standards of maintenance and operations with modified jet transports. Four years of R&D and the investment of over thirty million dollars of private capital have produced a game-changing innovation: an aerial platform that contains a fire in a faster, safer and less expensive manner than any existing or planned Next Generation aircraft.Our Story
