Global Warming Challenges & the Impact on Aerial Firefighting
Amentum Aviation is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for Aerial Firefighting North America 2022. Our presentation will serve not only as an introduction of our company, its heritage, and distinct capabilities to the Aerial Firefighting Community, but will also explore the impact of Global Warming on fire seasons. The presentation will include a historical look at California fire seasons through a climate change lens correlating temperature changes to observed effects on wildfires over the years. The discussion will continue on the impact of Aerial Firefighting Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures which has produced significantly more effective and efficient results and conclude with the importance of retaining pilots and maintainers.
