Qantas Airways Expands Training With I.T.S. Xtreme

Qantas Airways recently welcomed three I.T.S. Xtreme units as part of their training arsenal. By adding safe life-fire extinguisher training, Qantas is working to retain the designation of the world’s safest airline.

Qantas is Australia’s largest domestic and international airline, employing over 33,000 people. The I.T.S. Xtreme will be used to train cabin and air crew on how to properly use a fire extinguisher. The I.T.S. Xtreme is particularly useful for the airline industry because it includes stainless steel props that allow for advanced extinguisher training. The TrashCan, StoveTop, and Electric Motor Prop allow trainees to gain hands-on experience facing realistic fires with accurate flame patterns. The ability to adjust the difficulty patterns fits well with SOP of airline fire-fighting where back-up crew assist the fire fight.
