Wipaire and Fire Boss Host Successful Operators Conference in Minnesota

March 18-20 saw Fire Boss operators from around the world descend on the Omni Hotel Viking Lakes for the 2024 Fire Boss Operators Conference in Minnesota this month, where operators were provided two days of discussion, presentations from vendors, and time to network with other global operators of the venerable aerial firefighting platform.

Wipaire & FireBoss President and CEO Chuck Wiplinger opened the operator’s conference, welcoming attendees from Europe, Australia, North America & South America.

Attendees were treated to two days of events at the Omni Hotel Viking Lakes, in the shadow of the Minnesota Vikings training complex.

Participants engaged in two days of content that operators received, which was an extremely useful event, allowing operators to learn more about the company providing the aircraft and the many additional services provided to owners.

Attendees were also given a tour of the Wipaire and Dauntless Aviation facilities as part of the event.

Additionally, vendors presented to attendees the many and varied services and equipment available to operators that have enabled the Fire Boss to become one of the most formidable assets to employ on the fireground.
