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.
