Providing Unparalleled Aerial Support to Protect Lives and Properties Across the Nation

Western Pilot Service

Founded in 1989 by military veteran Beryl Shears, Western Pilot Service has grown to become one of the nation’s leading aerial firefighting services.

No matter the location, no matter the emergency, Western Pilot’s fleet of single-engine air tankers will be there to support the men and women on the frontlines – assisting them as they fight fires to save lives and property.

Headquartered in metro Phoenix, the Western Pilot team stands ready to serve our government partners and citizens with only a moment’s notice. Our experienced pilots, maintenance workers, and operations staff take pride in our flexibility, cooperative spirit, and preparedness in the face of challenging circumstances.

A full-service operation, Western Pilot has airplanes, personnel, support services, vehicle, fuel, and all the necessary equipment to fulfill our obligations, no matter the mission.

Because we believe that communication is the key to successful emergency problem-solving, we strive to communicate honestly and transparently with agencies and operators, whether you’re on the ground or in the air.
