    Title:Drop pattern and ground coverage analysis for the Conair hi-flow tank gating system on the AT-802F
 
    Year:2009
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Ray Ault (Lead); Colleen Mooney
 
    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.
