This DHC-2 Beaver has been designed for a wide range of users - easy enough for pilots with not too many hours, and for the seasoned pilot it has enough features to keep them busy for a long time. The Beaver was designed to be easy and fun to fly and there is even a touch of drama to be seen in the graphics and sounds.
Some things age gracefully, but some things seem to resist aging altogether and remain timeless - the DHC-2 Beaver is certainly one of them. In 1955 a new Beaver sold for $30,000 and a well maintained Beaver with only a few million miles on the clock is currently worth around $300.000. There are many operators who will tell you they fly the DHC-2 for the simple reason that it is the best aircraft for the job and that they do not care that it is older than they are.
There is, as far as we know, only one aircraft that has been heralded as being one of the most important achievements of a country. But the DHC-2 Beaver has that official award from the Canadian government, and for good reason - Canada would look very different if the Beaver hadn't provided reliable transport to those regions of the country that cannot be reached by road. The rest of the world was quick to see the benefits of the Beaver, and apart from air-to-air combat there is no task this aircraft has not performed - you name it and there is a Beaver that done it. On snow, ice, tundra, gravel, grass, water, sand, it's happy everywhere. It has flown on every continent and is probably the only aircraft to have landed at both poles.
