Fixed Wing Large Airtanker Services
Market Survey – Request for Information

In response to the National Aerial Firefighting Strategy 2021-2026, NAFC has recently welcomed funding by the Australian Government to procure an additional Australian Fixed Wing Large Airtanker (LAT) Service, ready for the 2022-23 Australian fire season.

This additional funding is aimed at increasing the availability of LAT Services to provide Australian emergency response. It is also an opportunity to further develop in-country capability and expertise in relation to LAT crews, support and maintenance.

To better understand the opportunities that the market may provide for this new arrangement, NAFC has engaged Landell Consulting to conduct a survey of the LAT market.

This is not a tendering process nor a pre-qualification exercise.
