Moorland Fires


PDG Helicopters have spent a very busy weekend fighting moorland fires across Scotland.

See: BBC Scotland news story

Today (Monday 2nd May) we have 3 aircraft fighting fires at Torridon, Dundonnel and Shiel Bridge and our sister company Irish Helicopters has 2 aircraft fighting similar fires in Ireland.

Our aircraft are equipped with 'Bambi buckets' which allow us to accurately drop water on the fires, see our fire fighting page for further details and to see us in action.

4pm Update

Dundonnel fire extinguished and aircraft re-directed to the Balmoral Estate for more fire fighting!
