De Havilland To Bring DHC-515 Firefighter to Market

제출됨
 
De Havilland Aircraft of Canada is moving ahead with the DHC-515 Firefighter program, with letters of intent in hand for the first 22 from European customers.

It’s a $40M dud . $6.2M helicopter delivers 2,500 gallons and scooper only delivers 1,600 gallon . Scooper needs specialized crew and are hard for most pilots to fly and at least 4,000 water runs

Which helicopter are you talking about?

A K-Max can lift 6,000 pounds / 720 gallons.

A Bell 412 can lift 6,600 pounds / 790 gallons.

A UH-60 can lift 9,000 pounds / 1,080 gallons.

A CH-47 can lift 26,000 pounds / 3,100 gallons.

There's a big gap between a UH-60 and CH-47, and I can't think of any helicopter that fits your numbers.
