Simulation Training + Tactic Centre

Conair’s state of the art training facilities house an AVRO RJ level D FFS and an AT-802 Level 5 FTD, plus a full Mission Training System (MTS), the first in the world of its kind. This specialized simulator platform incorporates integrated Flight Training Devices, with pilots operating together in a synthetic wildfire environment. A Bird Dog, or lead plane, trains with a variety of airtankers, using the MTS to practice together over a simulated wildfire, mimicking the complex aerial arena real life conditions create. Government agency Air Attack Officers, who strategize and coordinate the wildfire aerial response, also have the opportunity to train alongside pilots in the Bird Dog, practicing tactics ahead of wildfire seasons.
