AircraftCanadair North Star


Aircraft Canadair North Star is a revised and improved version of the American multi-purpose aircraft Douglas DC-4, at the same time, experts note that outdated piston aircraft engines used on this model earlier, were replaced, which in turn became the main factor of why the flight performance of the aircraft greatly improved.

In contrast to the model, the design of which was created by the plane, model Canadair North Star is not operated as a military aircraft, and its main purpose was to provide Canadian air carriers operating in the country, although later, these aircraft were also sold and a number of other Countries operators.

Depending on the configuration of the cabin, on board the Canadair North Star aircraft, it can accommodate up to 62 passengers in an economy class arrangement, 52 passengers in an 1 class arrangement, or equivalent to a cargo weight of about 11500 kg. Due to the maximum range of the flight, which is 6121 kilometers (maximum flight distance), the aircraft was very effective for all civil aviation in Canada, and despite the fact that in 1975 year from the operation of this airliner it was decided to refuse, at the moment the model aircraft Canadair North Star continues to be used, in particular, two aircraft are in Mexico (according to data for 2013 year).

As the power plant on the aircraft Canadair North Star uses four turboprop aircraft engine Rolls-Royce Merlin 622, each of which is capable of 1760 hp power, which in turn provides airspeed order 568 km \ h. (maximum flight speed of the aircraft). In addition, thanks to powerful turboprop aircraft engines, the airplane is able to freely cover distances of more than 6 thousand kilometers, however, there is in this small caveat, it is the large amount of fuel consumed, and that was one of the reasons for the withdrawal from service of this model.

During the entire production cycle of the Canadian aircraft manufacturers it was built 71 aircraft of this model, most of which are currently charged, is part of the museums, and only a matter of one or two aircraft are in operation.
