Heinen Brothers Agra Services, Seneca KA
I’ve been in this business for 42 years, and have had my left hand on literally thousands of Quadrants. The T3 is a pilots dream come true! I’ve never seen anything as smooth and comfortable, not to mention the safety aspect. Here at Heinen Brothers Agra Services we have them on our two new 802’s, and are planning on installing them on our five 502’s. I appreciate Kawak’s efforts to build and improve products for our industry! Keep up the good work!
Ventura County Fire Department, Ventura CA
Hi Mike (Kawak President, Mike Reightley),
I hope this email finds you well. As you probably know, we have yet to experience an actual WINTER down here in So Cal. The Santa Ana’s have blown every week for a month, and our fuel moisture numbers are at the same levels we had in August! This has resulted in several brush fire responses, and some action for your pump! I have forwarded some images of one of the recent fires, and shot #1421 clearly shows the Kawak pump, swinging proudly below Copter 6.
Thanks again for the continued use of your pump. It has performed flawlessly! We have, once again, submitted a request for the purchase of (1) pump in this year’s budget. We’ll have to see what happens.
Wildcat Helicopters, West Kelowna, BC
Wildcat Helicopters was the first company worldwide to fill a 369 gallon Firefighting Heli Tank consistently, and from any water source, using an electric hover refill pump and Kawak made it possible. It has opened the doors to Wildcat becoming a top contracted helicopter service provider for aerial firefighting in the Canadian and Australian markets. We have been consistently adding units over the years, with four additional units added for the 2012 season. The customer service, ingenuity and overall satisfaction of Kawak Aviation’s systems gives Wildcat the confidence to remain a dedicated and loyal customer.
