The ARFF simulator system at PIT is computer-controlled and features a 135-foot diameter propane-fueled burn area with an aircraft fuselage in its center. In addition to fighting fuel spill fires, firefighters are challenged with different emergency types such as: engine fires, wheel brake fires, and interior fires including cabin, flight deck, lavatory, and galley. The aircraft simulator provides a safe and realistic environment for practicing both suppression and rescue operations.
