Screen grab from the simulator for a fire retardant dispersal system from Trotter Controls.

David Benson of Trotter Controls sent us information about a simulator for their fire retardant dispersal system. The company makes the GENII firegate and controller for Air Tractor AT-802F single engine air tankers. Anyone with a Windows-based computer can download the program to train with the system.

Here’s how they describe the simulator:

This Windows-based simulator allows pilots to operate a virtual Fire Retardant Dispersal System (FRDS) and firegate from a personal computer. This is great training for new SEAT pilots and is just downright FUN. The simulator is a free download.

Whether you already own an FRDS GEN II, or you’re just considering an upgrade to the FRDS GEN II, you should check out the app. You’ll be amazed at how simple operating the world’s premier fire gate truly is.
