The annual exercise, organised by the Cyprus Forestry Department, began with firefighters setting barrels alight to simulate a fire.
Air support and two specially-adapted aircraft were called into action by ground forces, with 84 Squadron scooping up water from a nearby reservoir before dropping it over the simulated fire.
Flight Lieutenant Jez Bowles said the exercise, held in the Troodos Mountains, was "quite difficult".
"It was quite mountainous terrain, there was a reasonable amount of wind, and also due to the distance from Akrotiri, we had to carry a little bit more fuel than anticipated so we were operating at quite high weights."
Last year alone, Cyprus suffered 136 wildfires which destroyed four square miles.
In 2016, the island experienced its worst fires for a decade, with one blaze destroying 15 kilometres of land in four days.
