Description: The Air Tractor AT-802 is a flexible turboprop-powered fixed-wing aircraft capable of performing a variety of missions in support of civil customers such as agricultural work and firefighting. The AT-802 is considered as the world's largest single engine agricultural turboprop aircraft. The basic model, AT-802, has a two-seat cockpit while the AT-802A has a single seat cockpit. The AT-802F is intended for firefighting and is equipped with a computerized firegate. The same model equipped with Wipaire floats for amphibious operations is referred to as the Fire Boss. The first AT-802 aircraft made its maiden flight in 1990 and entered service with US Department for South American coca crop eradication in 2002. So far, more than 300 airplanes have been sold worldwide.

The twin-seat AT-802F Fire Boss is powered by a single Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67AG turboprop engine developing 1,350-shp of power at 1,700 rpm. The engine drives either a five-blade Hartzell HC-B5MP-3F, M11276NS or M11691NS propeller. Alternatively, the Fire Boss can be powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F engine developing 1,600-hp. In its firefighting role the aircraft can drop 88 gallons of foam or 820 gallons of water in just 30 seconds.
