From what I am reading this new calgsry facility will have three production lines, which tells me they have plans to ramp up.Funny because the new water bomber was a redesign of a old airframe. Guess what done working on the assembly line as we speak.
As for the Buff. They already had plans to upsize the Buff style aircraft. They were hoping the Canadian Government would see the value in such a move. They had possible sales overseas But nothing concrete. At the time this was comming from a company based in Victoria.
Which the government had nointerest allowing the west any work from federal contracts.
Time will tell. They are not building this new facility to just build water bombers.
Viking Air has been a leader around the world for the small nimble aircraft rebuilds and modifications hat serves the rugged terrain around the world..
