CREATE CHALLENGES WITH REALISTIC SCENARIOS
Aircraft fires represent a special challenge in firefighting due to the extreme nature of the potential hazard and the immediate impact on both the passengers and aircrew. LION offers a range of fire training simulators to create a series of different emergency scenarios. We collaborate with our clients to make sure they have aviation training props that simulate the sorts of scenarios they may encounter – all the way down to a full-size replica of the aircraft.
You can choose between digital technology and gas-based. Both options offer realistic, repeatable training sessions for aviation firefighters in a safe and controlled environment. Each one features intelligent controls to make fires repeatable – letting you decrease downtime and increase training time. Plus, every system includes built-in safety features to keep your trainees safe and make it easy to stop the action to explain proper response.
Brigade Fire Training
We offer aircraft props that allow for training of landing gear, wing engine, cockpit and engine fires. Because aircraft are constructed from a particularly lightweight material, fire can rapidly spread and engulf other areas of the plane. Our completed aircraft fire training projects include full-size replicas of a Boeing 737 and an F-16 fighter jet.
Helicopter Prop Training
This portable live fire prop features moveable main rotors, a functional cockpit and cabin doors. Modular pilot and burner systems can be used to create cockpit and cabin fire scenarios while integrated burners create weapon and engine fires that challenge firefighters with high heat and intense flames. Optional on-board smoke generator and sound effects such as fire, engine wind-down, and ammunition explosions add realism and training opportunities. Transport to and from your training site with the optional transport trailer with onboard propane storage.
Cabin Crew Training
This scenario is designed to simulate the inside of a passenger aircraft, and trains crew members to fight fires that may ignite in the cabin, lavatory, seat or overhead compartments. The interior of the aircraft can be filled completely with intensely realistic training smoke which further challenges ARFF personnel to make the right strategic and tactical decisions.

Realistic, self-generating flames respond to your trainees' efforts and are tough enough to handle getting smacked with a hose line in the process. Use our digital fire technology to train where live fire isn’t a possibility.
Propane and natural gas fires produce real heat and smoke for a training experience that closely models real-life conditions – and it’s as safe as fire can be. Configure our gas-based fires to simulate almost any fire behavior.
"Why LION? I have interacted with firefighter survival equipment manufacturers for over four decades, but I haven't met any that come close to LION with their sincere and proven interest in understanding (aka LISTENING) to what we, firefighters, genuinely need. Their endless pursuit to listen to the "voices of firefighters" and then utilizing the latest proven firefighting research results in bunker gear that supports us in best taking care of those who need us, as well as each other. From their demonstrated commitment in providing us with what we genuinely need to do the job, to their full and hands on involvement (in research and fiscal support) with the battle to reduce firefighter cancer, LION isn't just words- they are proven action with impressive results."
Billy Goldfeder | Deputy Fire Chief Loveland-Symmes Fire Department
"Recently, the Baton Rouge Fire Department accepted delivery of the ITS Xtreme fire extinguisher training prop and we have hit the ground running. We have trained over 200 people in the proper use of a fire extinguisher in approximately 6 weeks. This new technology is leaps and bounds better and more efficient than the old training method of the burn pan and carbon dioxide extinguishers. We are able to take full advantage of the ability to recharge the extinguishers onsite, thereby allowing us to reach more people effectively. This unit is exponentially easier to setup, use and maintain than previous methods."

"When you combine ease of use, quick set up and tear down time, actual training time, and SAFETY of this training system, there is nothing out there comparable."
George Ostrom | Safety Asst, AMRI Global
"The customer service has been awesome! I did have a problem with one of the fire extinguishers when it was first delivered. I made one phone call and spoke with a technician who immediately sent out a brand new extinguisher. They have contacted me often to make sure that I was completely satisfied and wasn’t having any further problems. It’s not too often that you can not only get a great product, but also great service. I would highly recommend it to others."
Denita Lynch | High Point Fire Department
"I have trained about 125 employees for one company, with great success. The system is very easy to set up, as well as to operate."
Pat Patterson | President LAAP, Inc.
"Thanks to [LION], we have directly cut over $1,000 annually from our contracted fire training and since we have been able to easily train staff, the system has paid for itself; given the cost of contracting out this training to the number of staff we trained ourselves."
