The Canadair CL-215 Water Bomber Program 670902

This paper presents a survey of the development, design, and production phases of the CL-215 Water Bomber and the potential variants.
The development phase was concerned with optimizing the configuration through operations research studies, wind tunnel tests, hydrodynamic tank tests, and preliminary design activity.
During the design, certification, and production phase, close liaison between manufacturing and engineering is being maintained.
In conjunction with engineering, marketing has determined the need for a number of different variants of the CL-215, including a Search and Rescue and a Transport aircraft.
