The Forest Service and the Dept. of the Interior contract for aircraft to perform various firefighting functions, including airtankers that drop retardant. The Forest Service contracts for large airtankers and certain other aircraft, while Interior contracts for smaller airtankers and water scoopers. However, a decrease in the number of large airtankers, from 44 in 2002 to 8 in early 2013 -- due to aging planes and several fatal crashes -- has led to concerns about the agenciesäó» ability to provide aerial firefighting support. This report reviewed agency efforts to ensure the adequacy of the firefighting aircraft fleet. It examines (1) Forest Service and Interior efforts to identify the number and type of firefighting aircraft they need; and (2) the Forest Serviceäó»s approach to modernizing the large airtanker fleet and the challenges it faces in doing so. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
