41 Companies Land Spots on $1B Forest Service Helicopter Support Contract

Forty-one companies have won spots on a potential 10-year, $1 billion contract vehicle for helicopter support services to the U.S. Forest Service.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers the provision of helicopters in the Type 3 category to support national resource conservation and wildland fire management programs, according to a notice posted Wednesday on SAM.gov.

Type 3 helicopters are light rotor-winged aircraft that weigh up to 7,000 pounds and can carry up to nine passengers.

These aircraft will support a variety of missions such as fire monitoring and suppression, initial
attack, prescribed fire and aerial ignition, rappel, short-haul and other related resource activities.

The government may also use the helicopters for law enforcement and administrative flights.

The firm-fixed-price contract has a one-year base period along with nine option years.
