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.


Solution to the water problem!


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.

Bringing this up, this is a great aircraft.

You absolutely have my vote @Skylines! The Beaver and its bigger brother, the DHC-3(T) & DHC-6 Otter are unbelievable and an iconic utility workhorse of Alaska (and Canada). It is actually designed for bush operations (wheel, ski, and float configs alike) and has an amazing weight and volume capability. (The Beaver DHC-2 can actually seat up to 8-9 people (with one pilot), I worked for a company in Alaska who operated with them as a dock-/ramp-hand.)
