Tired of scripted, mission-based aerial fire fighting? This add-on application is not mission-based, but instead puts you into a completely dynamic world.

FireFighter X is a completely stand-alone addon for FSX and P3D which runs alongside your sim. It generates fires dynamically and enables you to put them out. Just start your flight at the airport of your choice, using any aircraft in your hangar. Adjust the retardant amount in FFX to suit your aircraft (mind the weight!), choose water or red chemicals as agent and you are good to go!

Fires will start small. But with a bit of wind, they will grow and spread, so don't take too long finishing your coffee. Fly over the fires, calculate your speed and the ideal drop approach, position and altitude - hit the trigger - watch the fires turn to ash and steam (provided you hit them). Or drop large amounts of the red retardant as barriers, box the fire in and just let it burn itself out. Running out of water? Scoop water from nearby water bodies. This is possible with every aircraft too - but only advisable with flying boats.

Fighting fires as a team

FireFighter X offers full multiplayer functionality, even across different simulator versions. No additional software is needed, but it is also possible to use FireFighter X alongside an existing multiplayer set-up.

Fighting fires with AI support

Even if you are not into networked operations, you can nevertheless fight fires as a team by using the built-in AI function. AI fire fighter aircraft can be used in different modes and set-ups to add even more variety.
