I would love to see this type of aircraft implemented into IF !

Great feature :)

First we need interactive water for this…

Currently, we can land a normal aircraft in water… All aircrafts are DHC-2’s

Ha ha, true. More effects added to the water it would create the perfect scene for this aircraft! :)

We can do this with any aircraft anyway!😂

I prefer the DHC-3 Turbine Otter over the Beaver. I flew this one as passenger many times between YVR to Nanaimo. The co-pilot seat is also offered as a passenger seat (they removed the controls on the co-pilot side) Had the pleasure to be in this seat for a couple of times.

Tough luck if the pilot faints though :/

I had to include at the bottom of the post, which you may of seen… it just helps clarify a few things.

Everyone, let’s support this!

This plane is one of the safest, reliable, and sturdy planes ever built. It is the gold standard for bush planes.
