The most developed, high performance, reliable light amphibious airtanker available in the world today, providing state-of-the-art capability. A large, single engine, turbo-prop, purpose built fire fighting aircraft that combines the airframe and systems from the wheeled Air Tractor AT-802AF with a Wipaire Inc. float kit installed. Can operate from either fixed airport facilities (paved or gravel) or suitable sized water bodies. Equipped and certified for day/night VFR operations.
