First aircraft ever designed to fight bushfires from its inception, the
CL-215 was devised to replace French and Canadian Canso Catalina
amphibious planes. After receiving 10 orders from the French
Protection Civile and 20 from the province of Quebec, the Canadian
plane maker decided to launch their new aircraft on 1 February 1966.
Certified in Canada, France and the USA, the seaplane can scoop up
to 1,414 US gallons in only 12 seconds.


Because it's important to us!

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.

Recycled plastic

Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.

No bags and film

Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.

Oldies but Goldies

We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
