Aircraft Forward Compartment Cargo Fire Response

ARFF Online Academy

"Aircraft Forward Compartment
Cargo Fire Response"

Contact Hours: 1.0

CRJ 700 A CRJ (regional airliner) has a cargo fire warning, followed shortly thereafter by smoke in the cockpit. You will be able to observe from a pilot’s perspective how the inflight portion of the cargo fire and communications is handled. After ARFF crews are set up on the expected emergency landing runway, the pilots land on another runway forcing ARFF crews to make a quick change. Once the aircraft is on the ground there will be two scenarios reviewed. In the first scenario the flight crew initiates the evacuation. In the second scenario the pilots are incapacitated and the ARFF crew must secure the aircraft and rescue the pilots.
