About International Aerial Firefighting Awards

International Aerial Firefighting Awards are presented annually to recognise a significant contribution  by an individual or organisation to aerial firefighting.

The Awards were inaugurated in honour of the late Walt Darran and is previous known as 'Walt Darran Award'. Walt was a pioneer and advocate for advances in aerial firefighting. Being a highly experienced S2-T airtanker pilot and former highly decorated US Navy aviator from California, USA, Walt was a constant and passionate advocate for safety and improvement in the international aerial firefighting community. 

This year we were accepting nominations in two categories:

1. Safety in Aerial Firefighting 

2. Industry Innovation and Advancement

The nomination process for 2019 is now closed. We would like to thank everyone who submitted their candidates. The winners will be announced at the Aerial Firefighting Conference Dinner on 19th March 2019 in Nîmes, France.
