Abstract:

With the increasing sophistication of aircraft has come a corresponding increase in payload of weapons, fuel and cargo which is reflected in a potential increase in accidents and fires. This report is concerned with development of training facilities and techniques to enhance the capability of firemen in coping with their fires, while still maintaining a reasonable level of environmental impact. Training objectives are reviewed and evaluation criteria are discussed. Location and operation of training facilities are analyzed from a cost - effectiveness viewpoint. Three levels of training facility are described, ranging from operation of sophisticated, to fulfill requirements for training requirements on a local, regional or national basis. It is concluded that the essential facilities can be realized within the environmental constraints, but additional cost-benefit analysis is recommended.
