FROST uses small, high speed and maneuverable all-terrain vehicles. Each vehicle will be operated by at least one specially trained FROST team member and equipped with small, compact fire suppressing units. Several team members will carry the new HNE backpack foam extinguishers. FROST units can be inside the Aerobatic Box in close proximity to potential hot zones,due to their smaller size and versatility.
FROST utilizes backpack mobile units for our personnel to rapidly attack a fire with the sole objective of getting the pilot out. We carry only Halon foam units withto maximize fire suppression while conforming to FAA standards under 14 CFR 135.155.
With our small profile and all-terrain capability, FROST teams can be positioned strategically to ensure that our teams can get to any accident scene as quickly as possible. Our placement is approved inside the Aerobatic box and conforms to AC 8900.1 regarding fire suppression and critical crew.
