De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver D-FVIP The Beaver 'D-FVIP' (c/n 1512), owned by the German operator Himmelsschreiber Azur GmbH and based in the Port of Hamburg, was used for several years for sightseeing tours over Hamburg. On the 2 July 2006 the plane crashed shortly after takeoff due to an engine failure caused by a carburetor fire. The pilot tried to make an emergency landing on a railway road but the plane stalled and hit a wagon. Sadly, the pilot and four of the five passengers died in this accident. This is a repaint for the FSX default Beaver. By Tim Scharnhop.

description=When pilots talk about the de Havilland Beaver, the word that inevitably comes up is workhorse. For more than 50 years this sturdy aircraft has flown into and out of remote locations aided by its power, all-metal ruggedness, wide stance, and short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) capability. Whether fitted with wheels, skis, or pontoons, the Beaver is a can-do airplane. Often referred to as a “flying half-ton truck,?the Beaver is more versatile, and tougher, than any light truck. It was designed from the beginning to meet the needs of Canadian bush pilots, and no better plane for the purpose has come along. After half a century of service, the Beaver is still the thoroughbred of workhorse aircraft.

4. Save the file. You're done. Your new aircraft will now appear in the aircraft selection menu within the sim.
