Abbotsford airfield is home to Conair, specialists in fire fighting. They have a varied fleet of aircraft ranging from small ‘bird dog’ aircraft through to ‘heavy’ aerial fire retardent tankers. During our visit we had full access to the ramp and storage area. Being at the end of the main fire fighting season, most of their aircraft were present for post season maintenance.

The Grumman S.2 Firecats (Trackers) have now been retired and one of their newest conversions to fire fighting, a BAe 146 was present on the ramp.
