AT-802U: For COIN / CAS Operations

Particularly well suited for force application and situational awareness roles in asymmetrical warfare theatres of operation, the AT-802U is both economical and effective.  Like a truck, the aircraft is utilitarian in nature: tough, powerful, and configurable to simply get the job done. It can maintain very long endurance over target and can employ a wide range of weapons simultaneously, with a high degree of accuracy to minimize collateral damage.  


With its balloon tires and rugged landing gear, the AT-802U is built to land and operate off unimproved airstrips – even dirt roads – providing unprecedented direct support and coordination with ground troops. The AT-802U can fly in extreme heat and dust conditions and with its massive fuel reserves, loiter over target to find, fix and finish when other fighters have to return to the tanker.

Economical Operations

An effective military force knows that training makes the difference when
lives and victory are at stake.  Configured with a tandem seat cockpit
and dual controls, the AT-802U is ideal for flight and weapons training
to develop tactics, techniques, and procedures.  Coupled with a total
package maintenance and flight training program, operators can quickly
transition into the airframe and get to work.

With more than 340 successful deliveries of AT-802 agricultural and firefighting aircraft worldwide, AT-802 production costs and timelines are well established.

A simple rugged design, reliable flight systems, robust electrical system, minimal ground support equipment, and the proven Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F turbine engine give the AT-802U impressive performance with a very low operation cost. In fact, in counter-drug operations U.S. Department of State maintenance statistics show the AT-802 has an average of 1.7 maintenance man hours per flight hour.
