Stamped! DHC-2 Beaver Featured in Canadian Postal Series

New Five-Stamp Set Celebrates Achievements In Canadian Aviation

Viking Air Limited's facilities in Sidney, British Columbia, was the site of an unveiling of a new Canada Post stamp celebrating the DHC-2 Beaver's contribution to Canadian aviation. The DHC-2 Beaver is one of five achievements featured in Canada Post's new "Canadians in Flight" series.

Canada Post explained that the Beaver is considered the best bush plane ever built and was named one of Canada's top 10 engineering achievements of the 20th century. The all-metal plane's short takeoff and landing capability – along with its ability to be fitted with wheels, floats or skis – made the Beaver ideal for accessing and connecting remote areas of the country.

"We are honored that Canada Post has chosen the DHC-2 Beaver to be part of this new series celebrating achievements in Canadian aviation," said De Havilland Canada CEO, Brian Chafe. "This is a special day for our company and for the people whose lives have been improved by this amazing aircraft over the past seven and a half decades, with many more to come." In 2006, Viking acquired the Type Certificates for seven De Havilland Canada aircraft, including the DHC-2 Beaver. Today, over 750 of these iconic aircraft remain operational worldwide. In February 2022, De Havilland Canada became the operating brand for the companies that previously operated as Longview Aviation, Viking Air Ltd, Pacific Sky Training and De Havilland Canada.

The new stamps will be available at postal outlets across Canada starting Monday, October 17.
