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.
