The Otter is a single engine, high wing, propeller driven aircraft. It was conceived to perform the same roles as the previously succesfull Beaver but was overal a larger plane. Initialy named the King Beaver deHavilland began design work in January, 1951. Canadian certification was given in November, 1952. The Us Army soon became the largest operator of the aircraft (under the designation U1).
