In 1987, following market trends towards more efficient, powerful and reliable turboprop power-plants, Canadair undertook the task of retrofitting 17 CL-215 air-frames with the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW-123-AF engines, providing a 15% power increase over the original piston engines, as well as enhanced reliability and safety. The retrofitted aircraft were designated CL-215-T and also featured many aerodynamic and systems improvements including powered flight controls, cockpit air conditioning, as well as upgraded electrical and avionics systems. The most notable external features of the CL-215-T retrofit were the aerodynamic additions to the wings and empennage.
Based on the success of the CL-215, the company introduced the CL-415, a new-build production series beginning in 1993. The CL-415 first flew on December 6, 1993, with the first deliveries in November 1994. Orders from several countries soon followed.
