Did you know that Australia still does NOT have a sovereign aerial firefighting fleet?
The Government has failed to act by totally ignoring this Interim recommendation of the Bushfire Royal Commission.
Our bushfire seasons aren't going away - they are getting worse! We can't afford not to be prepared!
If you agree with me that Australia must build a sovereign aerial firefighting fleet then SIGN THIS PETITION!
- Each bushfire season the Government leases foreign owned helicopters and planes. This is a huge misuse of taxpayer funds because it is exporting money that could be spent here
- The Government must back the local Aussie aviation industry to build-up a sovereign aerial firefighting fleet
- A sovereign aerial firefighting fleet would ensure we are prepared for the next bushfire season
- This fleet should be owned by Australians and flown by Australians - our heroes of the sky!
