MAG Aerospace has acquired Discovery Air Fire Services, formerly a subsidiary of Canada-based specialty aviation provider, Discovery Air.
This acquisition adds aerial forest fire management, specialized charter aviation, and environmental monitoring services to MAG’s already robust ISR service offerings.
Discovery Air Fire Services is a Northern Ontario based Aerial Operations Company which has been active in the Canadian aviation industry for over 60 years, with primary bases in Dryden, Kenora, and Sudbury Ontario.
DAFS is focused on the provision of Airspace and Aircraft Management (Birddog) services, as well as Aerial Fire Surveillance and Air Charter. Discovery Air Fire Services also has an Imagery Division that provides low level Infrared Services, Multispectral Imagery, and Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) services.
Joe Fluet, MAG Aerospace Chief Executive Officer, said:
“Discovery Air Fire Services has a long and proud history of providing real-time situational awareness through aerial fire detection and management. We are thrilled to add Discovery Air Fire Services to MAG as we continue to grow as the world’s leading provider of ISR Services.”
