INNOVATION. EXCELLENCE.

Bridger Aerospace is an aerial firefighting and aerospace services company based in Belgrade, Montana, located at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (KBZN). It was founded in 2014 to support frontline firefighters with world-leading technology and aerial fire suppression systems. Since its inception, the company has grown from operating a single plane to commanding a significant Air Attack fleet, the most modern fire imaging and surveillance aircraft, and the world’s largest private Super Scooper fleet.

Bridger has become a leader in fighting wildfires, specializing in aerial fire-mapping operations, air attack, aerial fire suppression, and wildland firefighter technologies. We focus on providing the most effective and modern capabilities to fight fires from the air, supported by a world-class team and state-of-the-art facilities.

Our priority is to address the increasing threat of economic and environmental damage caused by wildfires and to provide support for ground-based firefighters.

COMPANY MILESTONES

2014

BRIDGER AEROSPACE
FOUNDED

 

Founded by combat veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars, Bridger was established with the vision of applying the lessons learned from close air support in war to enhance air support for wildland firefighters protecting our western communities. We began with a single aircraft and now operate one of the largest private aerial firefighting fleets in the world.

2015

FIRST YEAR OF
AERIAL FIREFIGHTING

 

The 2015 Fire Season marked our first year on contract, during which we flew three Twin Commanders for the Air Attack mission. This year laid the foundation for what would evolve into a full-fledged aerial firefighting operation.

2020

RECEIVED FIRST TWO
SUPER SCOOPERS

 

After a few years of rapid growth, hard work, innovation, and collaboration, we acquired our first two CL-415EAF Super Scoopers. This marked the beginning of our Fire Suppression and Initial Attack
capabilities.

2022

5TH SCOOPER &
PC-12

 

Our fifth Scooper was named ‘Devil’s Brigade’ as a tribute to the American-Canadian commando unit based near Helena, MT, during World War II.

Additionally, we added the Pilatus PC-12 to our Air Attack fleet, continuing to modernize our Air Attack platforms and enhance our capabilities

2023

BRIDGER AEROSPACE
GROWTH

 

This was among the busiest years on record for Bridger.

We became publicly traded on NASDAQ as BAER, received our 6th Scooper, completed our 3rd hangar, fought fires internationally, entered into an agreement to acquire and return to service 4 CL-215T Super Scoopers for future operations in Europe, and built two PC-12 Multi-Mission Aircraft.
