A long time enthusiast of the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver bushplane, aviation artist and researcher Neil Aird decided to do something about all the information he had amassed on this aircraft. This Web site is the start of this "mission"..it has surpassed his wildest dreams, and continues to "grow" by leaps and bounds!!
Neil, born in Scotland, is a long time resident of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Married to Danielle, they have three children, Katie, Robin and Anthony, and at present, three grandchildren.
As time permits, information will be added to the master index and eventually it will provide a source of information on every Beaver built. This information is of most use to aviation enthusiasts researching the previous identities of a particular aircraft. First ones to be entered are aircraft that are still extant. Beaver owners also might be interested in the brief history of their treasured airframe! More detailed information is available on request from Neil.
Since August 2001 Neil has been the DHC-2 and DHC-3 editor for
. This will eventually have a very comprehensive listing of these types in their huge, accurate database. Check it out .
He also helped Dan Willink in the compilation of a definitive production list that commenced with the MAY 2002 edition of AMCAR. March 2004 saw the final chapter...if there is ever a final chapter!!
This web site is dedicated to my patient and almost tolerant family.
