History was made on December 10 with the first flight of a de Havilland Beaver of Harbour Air Seaplanes, powered by an electric engine. The inaugural flight was made by pilot Greg McDougall, founder of the company. When he was inducted as a member of Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame at ceremonies held on June 4, 2019, he announced his intention to convert aircraft of Harbour Air to electric power.
