Dehavilland Beaver

The Dehavilland Beaver was and is the icon of the North. No other single airplane has so captured the imagination of a nation as the Beaver. Designed in the late 40's this plane so perfectly filled a niche that no other plane has come close to being as popular or versatille as the De Havilland Beaver (DHC2).

This plane can be outfitted with floats, Tundra Tires, or skis, making it a very versatille workhorse. Coupled with the ability to land on a variety of surfaces, the powerful radial engine ensures it can jump up off of short strips and it's solid design allows it to safely work strips and lakes that others would do well to stay away from.
