Canadair CL215 multirole amphibious aircraft Tested with FSX SP1 but may work also with SP2. The Canadair Cl-215 made its maiden flight on 23 October 1967. The first delivery was to the French civil protection agency in June 1969. Production of CL-215s continued through to 1990 with 125 built. This amphibious aircraft serves a number of roles in a number of countries, ranging from forest fire fighting to oil spill control on the open sea. Nicknamed the "Waterbomber" or "Super Scooper". Package includes aircraft model with 3D VC, three set of textures. 2D panel by Massimo Taccoli. FD files by Dennis Seeley. Gauges by Dennis Seeley and Massimo Taccoli. Sound files with permission by Dave Eckert. (See also 215GLASS.ZIP)

The Canadair Cl-215 made its maiden flight on 23 October 1967. The first delivery was to the French civil protection agency in June 1969. Production of CL-215s continued through to 1990 with 125 built. This amphibious aircraft serves a number of roles in a number of countries, ranging from forest fire fighting to oil spill control on the open sea. Nicknamed the "Waterbomber" or "Super Scooper," the aircraft can skim lakes, open water or reservoirs to fill its tanks with water. The water is mixed with additives and then dropped on wildfires and occasionally structure fires. The aircraft has a 2,673 l (1,410 US gal) fluid capacity, and is able to fill its tanks from a source as shallow as two metres in a mere 12 seconds.

This model made with fsds 3.51 is a complete rework of my older model released in 2003 it has been compiled with makemdl into FSX.It has been tested in FSX SP-1 but should work in SP-2.
In this new version the 3d model has been redesigned at 90% and now has a complete set of animations, a virtual cockpit with animated levers, pedals and yoke, opening doors with ladders, animated cowling gills and animated propeller pitch. Virtual cockpit panel has lighted gauges by night , landing and taxi lights works throwing a beam.

There are three set of textures depicting livery sported by real operators of the model.
As soon as I would have time I'll release a paintkit of the model.

Technical and performance data obtained from official data.

The panel 2d and 3d are a quite realistic representation of the effective layout of gauges on the panel even if the gauges design is not allways much like that of the gauges installed on the real panel. Gauges are of xml type and have been made by Dennis Seeley and Massimo Taccoli.

Dump water operation and advices.
Important to read.

In the aircraft.cfg file have been added appropriate-sized auxiliary (drop) fuel tanks
to represent the fire retardant payload.
Because of this IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to remember to adjust the total fuel load to keep it below the MTOW for land or water takeoffs. These are given in the Performance section of the ircraft.cfg file. Not correcting those values would be difficult to take off from the runway with the overveight and impossible to take off or even move when floating in the water.
Using of drop tanks to simulate the water tank weight give realistic feeling of weight decrease when the water/fire retardant is dropped.
It seems that there is not a valid solution to restore the weight of water/fire retardant in the tanks, or we have not found one. The only valid solution is to select a different aircraft and the select again the CL215.

However It is possible to simulate water tank refill and drop using the water dump panel and perform water dumping operation with water dropping effect, but you cannot feel the effect of weight decrease when the water/fire retardant is dropped if you don't use the right weight in the auxiliary water tanks. This is only possible when you load initially aircraft and adjust the auxiliary fuel tanks with the appropriate quantity that should be maintained below the MTOW, Max Take OFF Weight.

Installation
***********************************************************************************
To install this model into FSX follow this simple procedure:

Extract the here provided zip file in a temporary folder copy the folder Canadair CL215 into the Airplane folder of FSX. Copy the contents of effect folder (two files) into the effect folder of FSX.
Each texture folder includes a Thumbnail of the model which should show as a variation of the Canadair CL215 model in the Aircraft selection menu.

Then launch FSX and you'll find three Canadair Cl215 models in the Free flight menu under Bombardier/Canadair as aircraft manufacturer.

That's all and have a good time!
