Wildfire season is under way in Arizona; higher-than-normal wildfire activity and aerial firefighting activities are expected throughout the state this summer. The following PDF has information about firefighting aircraft, how they are used, and aerial hazards encountered at fires. We want to share the document with student pilots and their instructors, recreational aviators, or pilots who are transiting through southern Arizona. This information is provided by the Tucson Interagency Dispatch Center of the USDA Forest Service. Their organization has an interest in promoting a safe flying environment for all aviators who come across a wildfire.
