Viking completes acquisition of amphibious aircraft program from Bombardier

Further to the preliminary announcement made earlier this year, Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, has now completed the acquisition of the Amphibious Aircraft program from Bombardier, including transfer of the Type Certificates for the CL-215, CL-215T, CL-415 aircraft and all variants to Viking.

Upon completion of the Type Certificate transfer, Viking is designated as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for the amphibious aircraft fleet, including full manufacturing design rights for all variants. Viking also assumes responsibility for in-service product support for the fleet of 170 water bombers currently in operation in 11 countries worldwide.

“The completion of this acquisition is a significant milestone, and now allows us to fully engage with the operator group to understand their requirements,” said David Curtis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Viking and Chairman of Longview Aviation Capital. “Aerial firefighting capability is becoming increasingly important, and with our leadership in supporting utility aircraft, we look forward to working with operators to ensure these vital aircraft remain ready to perform to their full potential protecting communities and critical infrastructure.”

Viking has over 40 years' experience supporting a wide-range of utility aircraft, and will extend this pertinent industry knowledge to supporting the CL-215, CL-215T, and CL-415 amphibious aircraft fleet.
