Train Safely for Emergency Situations

Panther Tactical Simulator

The Rosenbauer Panther Tactical Simulator

The tower alerts the ARFF team that a fully occupied jumbo jet is requesting an emergency landing with an engine fire. Within seconds, the crew responds to their standby position in heavy rains. The aircraft lands, hydroplaning on the wet pavement and slides off the runway. Fire and smoke from the engine intensifies as flames begin to impinge on the fuselage. The Panther starts accelerating towards the incident and what happens in the next few minutes will determine if passengers survive. Situations like these are difficult to train for under realistic conditions – except when you have the Panther Tactical Simulator from Rosenbauer.

The Panther Tactical Simulator has multiple weather conditions, aircraft types, fire scenarios, occupant evacuations and other key elements that can be used in a variety of combinations to prepare every operator for any scenario. Because they only get one shot to do it right – is your team ready?

The Rosenbauer Tactical Simulators are available in a desktop (portable) system with steering wheel, pedals, center console and single HD monitor to the larger cockpit version with Panther seats, dash, center console and five HD monitors for a full immersion into the scenario.
