Viking water bomber putting out a fireThe Viking Aerial Firefighting aircraft are highly maneuverable at low speeds, and effectively pilotable in difficult-to-reach mountainous areas. It has the unique firefighting capability of dropping water on mountain sides while performing a tight run, making it a valuable tool for preventing fires from spreading upwards. This operation is virtually impossible with other standard air tankers and helicopters.

The agility of the CL-415, and CL-415EAF, as well as the ability to scoop 6,137 litres of water in twelve seconds, makes these the benchmark aircraft for firefighting missions and reducing loss due to forest fires.
