August 2017 – 70 years of the Beaver

On August 16, 1947 the first de Havilland beaver took to the air off a paved strip in Downsview, Ontario.

Celebrating this remarkable feet of Canadian engineering is special to me. Beaver C-GZBR, which we currently operate, was a part of my life before I can remember. I recently wrote about it on our business blog. Special thanks to my niece, Rebecca of Hello Harmony Studio for her commemorative design featured in that post as well as on t-shirts available for purchase in our office.

It only seems fitting that I select one of my favourite images of this aircraft (being flown by my favourite pilot) for our calendar this month.

  1. I enjoyed your article about your history with the de Havilland Beaver aircraft. Many of us have good memories of cars,tractors,boats,favorite baseball gloves etc.
    I’m happy you have fond memories with the beaver in your life.
