Introduced in 1969, the Canadair CL-215 Scooper stands as a series of amphibious “flying boat” aircraft developed and manufactured by Canadair. Unfortunately, the company faced bankruptcy and was subsequently acquired by Bombardier in 1986, taking over the project. From its inception, the aircraft was specifically designed for aerial firefighting and water bomber applications, necessitating a low-speed performance and substantial payload capacity for the CL-125. The CL-125’s design was meticulously finalized with a spacious fuselage, allowing for diverse operations such as search and rescue, and cargo or passenger transport, while maintaining its primary role in aerial firefighting among the CL-215s in service. The initial variant, the CL-215A, was powered by twin Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engines and marketed as a utility freight aircraft.
Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power equipment tailored for this aircraft, comprising tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, meticulously designed to meet the specific requirements of the Canadair (Bombardier) CL-125 aircraft.
