Harbour Air de Havilland e- beaver

Fri Nov 29, 2019 12:25 am

I just ran across some information on Harbour Air's e-beaver. I admit I did hear some things about this in the past, and did a search on this site.....did not see anything.
Howard Slutsken has some photos and information on his Twitter feed, looks like a very cool and interesting project, curious if anyone else has insight or photos, articles etc.
Apparently this bird will be ready to fly in a few weeks?!

Found another article detailing some of the work that has already progressed, components installed etc.
This article details some of the work already done, including the installation of a 750 hp magniX motor, very cool stuff!

It looks like I am the only poster and reader, lol!
Anyway, first flight is scheduled for Dec 11, and body going to be hanging around the Flying Beaver by south terminal next week? Weather dependent of course, the special permit for the test flight prohibits flying in the rain.
Apparently this is a worlds first, not very much hype or buzz......

Looks like the schedule is being bumped up to today!

Weather concerns have made them change the test flight to today from Wednesday.
Any spotters in the area? Wish I was there, sounds very cool.

Looks like it just happened. Pictures in the link below, hopefully some video surfaces soon. Looks like a beautiful day for a first flight!
Congrats to all involved!
