You have two perfectly capable companies already building fixed firetanks for helicopters in Oregon..ISOLAIR and SIMPLEX..both very capable and both with proven track records in fire suppression..Why waste U.S. tax payers dollars on new research and development when these folks can have you up and running in no time...OH by the way.. I am Canadian and we are proud to operate helicopter systems by both manuafacturers.. I think your Senator Merlkley needs to meet a few of these fine people of Oregon ( ISOLAIR and SIMPLEX )who not only provide the citizens of America a fine product but also the citizens of the world who have had their homes, and at times their LIVES saved by the products ISOLAIR and SIMPLEX have been supplying to helicopter operators in every corner of the planet..
