designed in 1947, the "Beaver" aircraft is one of the most popular
choices for float planes in the Pacific Northwest. Originally
developed and manufactured by
de Havilland Canada the original line was shut down in 1967 but high
demand has kept them going thanks to a robust "after market" industry
to produce and improve parts (including airframes) for the hundreds of Beavers still in service.
