Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday by taking a Beaver ride!!! This is a great opportunity being offered each of the long weekends this summer to simply go for a quick ride onboard one of our iconic de Havilland Canada DHC-2 "Beaver" floatplanes. Dock to dock your ride will be about 25 minutes but this will give you plenty of time to enjoy the features of our “Beavers” such as their comfortable interiors, enlarged windows for easy viewing and aviation headsets for all guests. Our pilots have a tight bond with the aircraft they fly and will be more than happy to enhance your onboard experience by answering any questions you or your guests may have throughout your ride.
The Beaver floatplane provides passengers and onlookers a sense of
nostalgia for a point in time when Northern Canada
was first being opened up and discovered by aircraft. The Beaver was designed
for flight in rugged and remote areas. It's
short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities make it ideal for areas normally
only accessible by canoe or by foot. Designed and built in Canada to
operate on floats, skis, and wheels it is powered by a reliable 450hp radial
(round) engine that produces a very distinctive rumble.
The first production Beaver was delivered to the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, a design partner, in April 1948. Production ceased in 1967, after approximately 1,700 Beavers had been built. Hundreds of Beavers are still flying today. It's rugged dependability and exceptional performance have made it a favourite with bush pilots, passengers and operators for almost 70 years. The Beaver is considered by many to be the best bushplane ever built. The demand for this ‘half-ton truck of the sky' is still as strong as ever. The Beaver was named one of the top ten Canadian engineering achievements of the 20th century. It has become iconic to plane spotters and has been commemorated on currency and postage, and received recognition in artwork, photography and in film.
