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.
