I flew serial 8, CF-SAQ when it was owned by Parsons Airways Northern LTD. of Flin Flon Manitoba. If one carried a Beaver load, it would fly quite well, except you depended upon the curvature of the earth to gain altitude. Biggest problem was the large cabin. to the fishermen and camp operators, one filled the airplane!! \\Too much for this underpowered airplane. Ours had a Pratt R985 of 450 HP. CF-SAQ was reengined by Island Airlines of Campbell River B.C. with an Alvis Leonides engine of 550 HP which made a proper airplane out of it. It crashed in the Straits of Georga, I do believe. Someone in Oregon has plans to put a turbine engine into what will be known as a Turo Husky.
