Aero-Flite, Inc, headquartered in Kingman, expanded their existing fleet of air tankers to include three new planes. Aero-Flite is the largest private operator of water-scooping aircraft in North America.
The Avro RJ85 Next Generation Air Tankers, under contract with the US Air Forest Service, deliver fire retardant for wildland fire suppression with a state of the art delivery system.
The multimillion-dollar expansion is being financed by Alliance Bank of Arizona.
Currently, the Aero-Flite planes are fighting fires on the west coast in Washington and California, and can be flown anywhere in the United States and Canada to provide rapid, reliable aerial fire suppression services.
With 11 offices in Greater Phoenix, Tucson, Sedona and Flagstaff, along with Western Alliance’s robust national platform of specialized financial services, Alliance Bank of Arizona is a valued partner for Arizona’s business, real estate, professional, municipal and nonprofit communities.
