IATS Group operates in the maintenance of the CL-415 Babcock thanks to being an ENAC Part 145 certified company for C20 structural components. The work is carried out physically at the headquarters in Roccadaspide through the work of an experienced and qualified team that uses modern tools and machinery. The work begins with the first phase of analysis allowing the identification of all the problems related to the components.
Afterwards the results of the analysis phase are communicated and then the actual repair work is carried out using complex welding operations. The maintenance, repair and reconditioning activities allow to preserve the integrity of the vehicle and always ensure high performance.
The CL-415 is a twin-engined high-wing turboprop amphibious aircraft built firstly by the Canadian company Canadair, then by Bombardier Aerospace and later by Viking Air Limited. It is an aircraft designed to fight fires thanks to the possibility of efficiently operating in forested and rich in water regions. It was developed by Canadair to create a more powerful version of the earlier CL-215 by adopting a new domestic turboprop engine, two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW123AF. Released in 1994, it can load 6,137 litres of water in 12 seconds. The multi-role version also works for maritime patrol and search and rescue.
