Russian specialist aircraft producer Beriev has won a pair of contracts totalling as many as 15 units for its Be-200 amphibian.

The largest of the two deals, for four firm aircraft and six options, is with US firm Seaplane Global Air Services, which will use the jets for firefighting missions.

An initial pair of Be-200s will be delivered with Ivchenko-Progress D-436TP engines, while the remainder will be equipped with SaM146s from NPO Saturn-Safran joint venture PowerJet.

In addition, Chile's Asesorias has placed a firm order for two examples, with three aircraft covered by options.
