| Abstract:||The Air Tractor AT-802F is currently used by Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and New Brunswick for aerial fire suppression. In 2008, engineers at Conair Group Inc. designed a new tank gating system to improve the fire fighting performance of the AT-802F. In May 2009, FPInnovations, at the request of Alberta Sustainable Resource Development, conducted a series of drop tests at the Abbotsford Airport in British Columbia, Canada with the amphibious Air Tractor AT-802F, using both Conair’s new gating system and the standard gate system.
This project was completed on contract for ASRD. For more information, please contact Ray Ault.
