amphibious scooper air tanker
No other air tanker attacks wildland/urban interface fires with the agility, tempo and effectiveness of the 802F Series.
Multi-Role Capability: When equipped with amphibious floats installed by Wipaire, the AT-802F becomes the Series scooper air tanker, able to land on and scoop water from nearby lakes, rivers and reservoirs. From a nearby water source, the 802F Series can deliver up to 14,000 gallons per hour for extended attack or ground support. An unimproved runway or water-side ramp and fuel are all it needs to be a highly cost-effective forward attack air tanker.
Powering the Series is the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F turboprop engine. With 1600 horsepower, it has more than enough muscle to keep the Series hauling its payload and maneuvering in mountainous and/or hot operating environments.

trainer and breadwinner
Here is the recognized superior platform for both aerial application and instruction. It’s the modern turboprop trainer that pays its way, every day.
