Overview

This unique text will be the basic training manual for fire science students needing to know how to deal effectively and safely with fires at General Aviation airports and aircraft. Structural firefighting crews, usually the first to respond to any GA incident, often lack the knowledge of how to deal with such a circumstance. Written by a 25-year fire service veteran with vast experience in the GA field, this book provides an easy-to-read style with ample illustrations that explain an airport environment, how to establish vital communication links, the components of GA aircraft, coordination with other agencies, and the types of incidents that involve GA airports and aircraft. Case studies of incidents on and off airport property add vitality to this lively text.

This book is designed to help firefighters who deal primarily with structural fires to become aware of the area of general aviation (GA) fire fighting, and to enhance the knowledge, competence, and confidence of the average firefighter in the case of a general aviation fire call. Tackett, a captain with the Willoughby Fire Department, introduces the basic geography of airports, the necessary communications in case of a GA fire, the elementary aspects of aircraft systems, and coordination with other agencies. He reviews several types of incidents, using case studies of fires both on and off of airport property. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
