Valdor Aircraft brings the legendary De Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver back to life

miércoles, 15 de noviembre de 2023


This project is part of a sustainability initiative designed to extend the Beaver's lifespan by several decades. The Supplemental Type Certificate recently granted by Transport Canada allows for the replacement of the Beaver's original piston engines with high-performance turboprop engines from Pratt & Whitney Canada, along with the installation of BX wings, built entirely at the Val-d'Or plant. The ambitious retrofit program meets Transport Canada' latest requirements, and to achieve this, many of the Beaver's original systems and features have been modified and upgraded.
