DeHavilland Beaver

The quintessential Alaska bush plane, the DeHavilland Beaver occupies a seat of honor in the annals of aviation history. Perhaps no other airplane ever built has seen such a long career, and proven to be as indispensable today as it was when developed over 65 years ago.

The sturdily-built Beaver was designed to carry a lot of weight and operate effectively on either wheels or floats. Alaska Seaplanes' Beavers all operate on straight floats from April into November for maximum payload, and generally spend the winter warm and dry in one of our hangars. All our Beavers have advanced Capstone avionics packages with ADS-B real-time positioning capability.

With an ample useful load and the ability to carry up to six passengers, our Beavers are the perfect airplane for ferrying you to wilderness camping destinations—remote lakes, Forest Service cabins, islands and rivers.

We have many options available in our fleet for your charter needs. Each aircraft has unique capabilities and capacity, with specific interiors to suit the job. Learn about each below.
