Planes: Fire & Rescue
Windlifter is a heavy-lift helicopter who can hoist dozens of trees or a huge tank of fire retardant. The American Indian’s wisdom is vast—he’s chock full of fire folklore, and his connection to nature allows him to sense fires before they’re even spotted. The former lumberjack became a firefighter to help others, and no mission is too big or difficult for Windlifter.
Windlifter is a member of The Smokejumpers, an organization working to fight against wildfires.
It appears that Windlifter enjoys working out, he is seen lifting logs when he is first spotted in the movie.
"We need every plane we've got."
"He waxes himself...daily!"
"GO... and be safe."
