Disney fans and wannabe firefighting pilots will all be able to experience what it's like to put out wildfires in the extreme wilderness, just like Dusty and his friends do in Planes: Fire & Rescue.

Flight simulator manufacturer Redbird has created a simulator in support of the movie that provides an authentic and challenging flight experience. As pilots are put in the air with water tanker Dusty, they are tasked with putting out a fire near "Piston Peak" National Park.

The sim has already made an appearance at several events, including the American Heroes Air Show, the National Cherry Festival, and the Planes: Fire & Rescue Premiere. Its next stop will be the AirVenture: Oshkosh, Wisconsin on July 28-August 3.

Planes: Fire & Rescue opens in theaters today.
