Over the years, de Havilland Canada has manufactured a number of remarkable commercial aircraft: the Beaver (considered the ultimate bush plane, against which every other bush plane is measured), Otter, Twin Otter, Dash 7 and Dash 8. It also developed the unique Buffalo and Caribou military transports, some of which ended up in airline operations. From floatplane operations in Canada, Alaska and the Pacific and up-country flying in Twin Otters in Africa and elsewhere, to glacier operations with the Turbo Otter, Dash 7s in Greenland and operations with major airlines worldwide, these aircraft have been used all around the world in a variety of different roles. By combining history, facts and figures with anecdotes, commentary and quotes, this book, which is illustrated with over 200 stunning photographs, celebrates these legendary aircraft.

This is a very readable book... Authoritative feedback from those in Canada who are “in the know” gives the book a thumbs-up.

THE STORY OF de Havilland Canada (DHC) is a perennially fascinating one, and is entertainingly told by the always readable Christopher Buckley.

There is a lot of good, new material here, both factually and photographically.

The Aviation Historian Jan 2023 Issue No.42

There are many fascinating snippets of information: there are over 800 Beavers still flying (almost half the number built) despite production having finished in 1967, Harrison Ford is the happy owner of one, an eBeaver is under development.
