Belgrade-based company Bridger Aerospace, which owns the largest fleet of Super Scoopers, may soon be battling wildfires on an international scale. According to NBC Montana, the company is evaluating requests from Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia, and hopes to expand their core business of U.S. firefighting to meet the growing global demand for their assets.

“We’re being requested routinely from all over the world,” said Bridger Aerospace CEO Tim Sheehy. “So, we’re evaluating that this year, and hopefully will do so.”

Bridger Aerospace recently added a sixth scooper to their fleet, which they believe will make it easier to spread resources and help protect foreign lands and their own lands from devastating wildfires. The company plans to make scooper number six, number 286, available for use in Montana for most of the year.

“Ultimately, our goal is to help fight wildfires wherever they occur, and we’re excited about the opportunity to do that on an international scale,” added Sheehy.

Bridger Aerospace’s commitment to fighting wildfires and protecting communities has earned them a reputation as one of the most trusted and reliable aerial firefighting companies in the world. As they prepare to take their expertise and resources global, their dedication to keeping people and properties safe remains unwavering.
