Air Tractor AT 802

The Air Tractor AT-802 continues, season after season, to prove its value as the best aerial firefighting asset, without parallel.





The Air Tractor AT-802 is built for battling fires large and small—not only as an initial attack firefighter, but also for extended duties supporting ground crews. It combines agility, performance, high reliability, and pinpoint accuracy with a versatility that allows it to operate where other firefighting aircraft can’t.

Best Aerial firefighting asset without parallel

A powerful Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67AG turbine engine allows the AT-802 to ferry between the fire and the airfield at speeds approaching 322 km/h. Swift transit times coupled with the flexibility to operate from remote airstrips, dirt roads, or small airports near the fire, allow the AT-802 to make an impact on a fire very rapidly.

Once over the fire line, the AT-802 slows things down—dropping its payload low, slow, or in intervals and right where it’s needed to knock down brush and grass fires or suppress fires in heavier canopies. The AT-802’s maneuvering agility, speedy climb rates and compact size make it ideal for mountainous terrain, narrow flight corridors, and wildland-urban interface areas.

Air Tractor’s Gen II Fire Retardant Dispersal System (FRDS) is the industry’s most advanced and proven single engine air tanker fire gate.

Low operating cost, fuel efficiency, and extended operating range also make the AT-802F an ideal air asset for patrol duty—and immediate response—on days when the wildfire risk is high.

And when the fire season is over, the AT-802 is ready to go back to work – not back into the hanger. The same qualities that make the AT-802 a superior aerial firefighter also make it perfectly suited for forest restoration in the wake of wildfires. Its 800-gallon capacity, speed and maneuverability help to make quick work of hydromulch application or reseeding for erosion control.

Rand for rand, pound for pound, the AT-802 is simply the most efficient, effective air tanker flying.
