Our Planes

The Alaskan Turbo Beaver

Our airplane is the De Havilland Beaver DHC-2 and it is such a great airplane. Built in Canada from 1947-1967 over 1600 of these marvelous airplanes were produced. It is a high-wing, propeller driven, tail wheel (conventional gear) airplane. Built to haul heavy loads and perform all types of tasks from float operations, to wheels, and even snow operations on wheel-skis. The original design came equipped with six passenger seats and a Pratt and Whitney 985 radial engine that used 100LL av gas and has 450 horsepower.

Our Beaver is a DHC-2 MK III. This version has a Pratt and Whitney PT-6 with 675 horsepower burns jet fuel. This is one of the most reliable power plants in aviation with minimal moving parts and the added horsepower allows us to operate at high altitudes on warm days. The beaver has been used for everything from military transport, Med-Evac flights, aerial application for crops and forests, freight hauling around the world, and tourism.

With the added horsepower of our airplane comes an additional three passenger seats and more available weight carrying capacity. We now have nine passenger seats or can take out some of the seats to haul all sorts of freight, fuel drums, supplies, camping gear, or really anything you can fit through the doors. The large windows allow for every passenger to have a great view of the amazing scenery.

The Beaver has STOL(short take-off and land) capabilities that makes it IDEAL as a bush plane and is the reason it is so popular in Alaska and Canada to provide transportation to the bush communities and also for tourism such as bear viewing and mountain climbing.

The Cessna 185

The Cessna 185 Skywagon is a six-seat, single-engine, general aviation light aircraft manufactured by Cessna. It first flew as a prototype in July 1960, with the first production model completed in March 1961. The Cessna 185 is a high-winged aircraft with non-retractable conventional landing gear and a tailwheel.

Similar to the De Havilland Turbine Beaver, the 185 is an iconic bush plane used all across the world from Africa to Alaska, and Austraulia to Papua New Guinea. These amazing airplanes are like the ¾ ton truck of the sky and can almost haul as much weight as the airplane weighs when empty!

The Skywagon can also be fitted with floats, amphibious float, or skis. The AgCarryall variant of the 185 adds a 151-gallon belly chemical tank and removable spray booms for aerial application. It is also possible to fit a cargo pod under the fuselage that can carry an extra 300 lb (136 kg). Our Alpha Romeo is outfitted with 29” bush tires to roll over any rough bumps the desert can throw at us as well as a cargo pod to carry that extra gear. We can fit full sized snowboard or ski bags in that pod!
