Ahmic Air operates the de Havilland Beaver (DHC-2) aircraft exclusively and only on floats. Operating only one type of aircraft means that our pilots, maintenance, and operations personnel are extremely knowledgeable and capable with this aircraft. This knowledge combined with the Beaver's amazing abilities ensure a safe and reliable experience for all passengers.

The de Havilland Beaver was designed for flight in rugged and remote areas.  It's short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities make it ideal for areas normally only accessible by canoe or foot.  Designed and built in Canada to operate on floats, skis, and wheels it is powered by a reliable 450hp radial engine. The Beaver's rugged dependability and exceptional performance helped open up the north.  These characteristics have made it a favourite with operators, bush pilots and passengers for 65 years.

Hundreds of Beavers are still flying today.  The Beaver is considered by many to be the best bushplane ever built.  The demand for this ‘half-ton truck of the air’ is still as strong as ever.

Our Beaver is available for charter.  We strongly believe that your flights with Ahmic Air should be enjoyable and a distinct part of your northern vacation.  we aim to make your experience on our Beaver aircraft fun, memorable and safe.
