The best,

This one is the 300th 802 delivered new last year from Airtractor and was a huge milestone for the Airtractor company with much fan fair and media at the time!. This one doesn't have dual controls but one of our others does. We use them for fire fighting and spraying here in Western Australia and also ferry them to Europe for a fire contract we have there. The second seat is used to carry a language interpreter when on contract in southern Europe. Those guys don't speak English which makes for some very interesting days!!

Cheers
Graham

Cheers,

Yes, there selling like hot cakes! We just took delivery of another new one 2 weeks ago. This one has the "F" engine fitted, 400 more ponies up front. Should be a blast to fly in the mountains....

How 'bout adding 6664 lbs to the airplane in 15 seconds!!??
 
The 'Fireboss' is an AT 802 equipped with Wipaire amphibious floats with a scoop that packs in 800 gallons from a lake or river in 15 seconds:eek:, while on the 'step' with foam agent automatically added!

Engineering marvel,

That sure is looking good!

I am building an RV6 and I am planning on putting in and IO-320 also.

I would like to know what model engine and prop you have, with what extra's also.

You do know that we have more in common than just RV6's;)

This RV6 was originally built by Reed Smith of Maryland. He did an excellent job and I am enjoying the plane immensely.

A couple of days ago after an evening flight, pretty sky, so stopped for a photo on the way back to the hangar...
