Air Tractor

Aerotech NT operates three Air Tractors including three AT 802 and one AT 502. Both models are powered by a Pratt and Whitney turbine engine to provide a high level of safety and reliability.

The Air Tractor is designed and manufactured in Texas and is recognised worldwide as the benchmark in Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT) fire fighting aircraft.

The Air Tractor AT 802 is the largest application aircraft in production and purpose-built for fire suppression. The aircraft's large capacity, fast speed and ability across a range of operations make it ideally suited to operating in the Northern Territory.

The Air Tractor AT 502 is a slightly smaller model aircraft  and is an effective and efficient application aircraft for both spraying and spreading.
