The DHC-515 is a new production multi-mission amphibian and purpose-built aerial firefighting aircraft that builds on the history of the iconic Canadair CL-215 and CL-415 aircraft which have been a critical part of European and North American aerial firefighting fleets for over 50 years.

Originally conceived as a next generation development of the piston powered CL-215 aircraft, and the turboprop conversion CL-215T, the CL-415EAF is instead becoming the basis for a potential next generation CL-415. Today, Viking offers newly converted CL-415EAF aircraft under an operating lease program from Longview Aviation.

First flown in 1993, the CL-415 aerial firefighter built on the success of the CL-215T. With avionics updates, increased operating weight and a higher capacity, foam injection 4-door firefighting system, the CL-415 is a worthy successor.

Originally conceived as a twin-engine transport floatplane, the CL-215 first flew in 1967. The CL-215 aerial firefighter was designed to operate at low speeds and in gusty conditions, perfect for fighting fires.
