From aerospace manufacturer de Havilland Canada, the DHC-4 Caribou is the eighth addition to the Series. It is a short takeoff and landing (STOL) twin-engine cargo aircraft originally developed as a military cargo and troop transport. The Caribou was conceptually based on the STOL performance of the smaller, but higher carrying capacity, de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter.

The Caribou made its maiden flight on July 30, 1958, and was introduced into mainstream service in 1961. De Havilland built a total of 307 Caribou aircraft, most for military service and the rest for civilian missions. The militaries of 32 countries flew the Caribou, including the United States. Designated first as the CV-2 and later as the C-7, the United States Army and United States Air Force operated a total of 159 aircraft. Spain, Kenya, India and Australia also used the airframe until 2009.

The DHC-4, manned by two pilots, is capable of carrying up to 32 soldiers and their equipment along with 8,000 pounds of cargo or some combination thereof. The Caribou has a distinctive, utilitarian look, featuring a long, narrow fuselage with a rear loading ramp and raised tail section, allowing for easy and efficient loading and unloading of equipment and personnel.

Likewise, it can execute airdrops of equipment and/or paratroopers on request. The empennage is a cruciform design, with a large vertical stabilizer and rudder for low speed yaw authority and has a retractable tricycle landing gear with long landing gear legs for use on remote and rustic airfields. The main wing’s high aspect ratio design is mounted forward of the fuselage and has full-span dual-slot flaps.

The wing is shaped like a polyhedral inverted gull and supports its two radial engines in nacelles that also serve as supports for the main landing gear. Finally, the aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney R-2000 Twin Wasp 14-cylinder radial piston engines, each generating 1,450 horsepower and turning a Hamilton Standard constant-speed, reversible-pitch propeller. 3 blades.

The Caribou served in various combat zones and has been used for a variety of humanitarian assistance missions over the years, most notably in Vietnam, Vanuatu and in the Line of Control along the India-Pakistan border region. . In these harsh operational arenas, the Caribou earned her legendary status, as she took off and landed on short, rugged runways with as little as 1,000 feet of ground travel.

The DHC-4 has a range of 1,300 miles, climbs at 1,355 feet per minute, and has a service ceiling of 24,800 feet above sea level. It flies at 182 miles per hour, stops at 68 mph, and has a top speed of 215 mph.

The de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou is an imposing aircraft that is a true aviator’s machine. This aircraft is capable of flying in and out of almost any runway and confidently responds to every input from the pilot.
