de Havilland Beaver & Turbine Seaplane The six-passenger piston de Havilland Beaver is the most successful seaplane ever built, and has been the mainstay of our fleet since the early 1960's. The Beaver sports a thick wing for maximum lift, a sturdy structure and a powerful, reliable 450-horsepower Pratt Whitney R-985 radial engine. The last brand new Beaver came off the line in 1967, however our fleet of Beavers have all been meticulously overhauled by our world-renown aircraft maintenance facility. The de Havilland turbine Beaver makes a good plane even better by having a larger carrying capacity, a higher climb rate and faster cruise speed.
de Havilland Otter Seaplane
Following the success of the de Havilland Beaver, the Turbine Single ten-passenger de Havilland Otter is one of the most versatile and dependable seaplanes operating today. Originally designated the “King Beaver”, this aircraft eventually became known as the DHC-3 Otter as it’s bigger in every dimension than it’s older sibling. The single engine de Havilland Turbine Otter is the largest, most powerful aircraft in our fleet with a range of 500 miles at a normal cruise speed of 134 mph. And like all our Beaver’s, our fleet of Otters have all been overhauled and incorporate many enhanced features.
