Kyle understands the importance of safety and training, and has hosted two aviation fire training events at the airport. His stress on safety first is not limited to just aerial fire application, he applies it in all his operations and strives to operate top notch equipment, constantly investing in improving his aircraft and related equipment. When the AMSAFE Inflatable Restraint system became available for the Air Tractor aircraft Kyle was the first operator in the world to purchase and install a retrofit kit into his aircraft. The Scott Aviation and CO Fire Aviation fleet is 100% equipped with this important safety feature for their pilots.
 
While Scott Aviation, Inc. specializes in Agricultural Aerial Application, Kyle and partner Chris Doyle noticed over the past several years the increase in wild land fire activity. It is with that in mind CO Fire Aviation was formed to provide additional assets in order to enhance the aerial fire suppression capabilities.  They are a professional and dedicated aviation company whose sole purpose and focus is to provide the service of Aerial Fire Suppression to not only the local community but to any community who might need assistance.
