Traditionally, aircraft fire training rigs have been an all or nothing proposition. Depending on the size of the aircraft and scope of civil works, projects have ranged from 3 million to more than 10 million $. Today, however, expandable ARRF Trainer concepts are opening the door to more flexible budgeting options. Expandable ARFF Trainers allow for growth of a training ground over time, yielding more immediate access to hands-on training with limitless long-term potential.
Expandable ARFF Simulators, new from Fireblast Global, allow for a reduced initial investment, shorter project duration, and more immediate local training for aviation fire and safety emergencies. Initial phases can provide for cabin crew training with passenger seat fires, rollover, and overhead baggage compartment fires, while fuel spill fires can facilitate annual certification requirements for airports. But what if land is not available?
Why Choose Expandable?
- Build as you grow (master planning ensures easy additions later)
- Shorter leads times (as little as 6 to 10 months to start training)
- Lower initial project cost (to less then $1mil USD w/ civils in some cases)
- Begin generating revenue with minimal capital investment, leading to quicker funding of additions
- Reduce expenses (related to off-site training)
Aircraft rescue and firefighting presents unique challenges to the personnel involved. With Fireblast’s fixed ARFF training props, we bring realism to the training field, maximizing the preparedness of rescue teams and firefighters when they encounter real life ARFF scenarios. We have designed, built, and trained ARFF training teams around the world on our ARFF props, including Fixed ARFF Trainers.
Using multiple fuel sources, Fireblast Global is able to design and implement fixed ARFF trainers to meet both FAA requirements for all Index airports and ICAO requirements for each CAT of airports.
PC Controls allow a wide variety of fires to choose from both interior and exterior of a wide range of fuselage sizes.
Looking for an upgrade to your existing facility? Fireblast Global can retrofit our advanced systems into any existing fuselage, including upgrades to your spill fire.
