The de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou (designated by the United States military as the CV-2 and later C-7 Caribou) is a Canadian specialized cargo aircraft with short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. The Caribou was first flown in 1958 and although mainly retired from military operations, is still in use in small numbers as a rugged bush airplane.

The design was further developed as the de Havilland Canada DHC-5 Buffalo, adding turboprop engines and other changes that further improved its short-field performance to the point where it competes with light aircraft even with a full load.

The de Havilland Canada company's third STOL design was a big increase in size compared to its earlier DHC Beaver and DHC Otter, and was the first DHC design powered by two engines. The Caribou was similar in concept in that it was designed as a rugged STOL utility aircraft. The Caribou was primarily a military tactical transport that in commercial service found itself a small niche in cargo hauling. The United States Army ordered 173 in 1959 and took delivery in 1961 under the designation AC-1, which was changed to CV-2 Caribou in 1962.

The majority of Caribou production was destined for military operators, but the type's ruggedness and excellent STOL capabilities requiring runway lengths of only 1200 feet (365 metres) also appealed to some commercial users. U.S. certification was awarded on 23 December 1960. Ansett-MAL, which operated a single example in the New Guinea highlands, and Amoco Ecuador were early customers, as was Air America (a CIA front in South East Asia during the Vietnam War era for covert operations). Other civil Caribou aircraft entered commercial service after being retired from their military users.


Thank you for downloading my Ground Services de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Aircraft Profile for GSX Pro. This Profile was created using Microsoft's Microsoft de Havilland Canada Caribou DHC-4 Turboprop Aircraft.

To install this GSX Pro Aircraft Profile into your sim all you need is 7-Zip, WinRar, or any type of zip/unzipping software. Using either 7-Zip or WinRar will decompress the other without any problems. Once the folder(s) are decompressed you can then copy the decompressed folders into the GSX Pro Folder below:


To access this folder on your computer simply hold down your "Win" key whilst pressing the "R" key on your keyboard. This will bring up a Command Line Run box where you can copy the above underlined text into it. This will open your GSX Pro folder where your DEFAULT Aircraft Profiles are kept, that is it!

Once again you can find ALL my GSX Pro profiles for Aircrafts & Airports in the LINK below:

**** SPECIAL ****

In Cooperation with other MOD Creators on I would like to share a link that SELF-INSTALLS GSX Pro Airport Profiles directly into your "%APPDATA%\Virtuali\GSX\MSFS" Folder. The Application is Called "Drag&Drop Installer for GSX Pro Profiles", this impressive little App will take away any searches or finds that you will have to do to locate the folder necessary to copy your GSX Pro Airport Profiles into.  Created by >>Elevate Solutions<<, a collaboration between >>FatGingerHead<< and smatthew. Click >>HERE<< to access the link to the Drag & Drop Installer Application.  Please remember that this application ONLY works for GSX Pro Airport Profiles, NOT Aircrafts created with GSX Pro.

*** NOTE: *** 

One of the things that help with immersion with ALL Simulator Aircraft are the payload settings, for you to get the most PAX on an aircraft when boarding and deboarding you need to set the payload settings in the sim for these aircraft between 30% - 100%.  You can save these settings by pressing "Save" and giving it a name or leaving the default name given to the file generated. If not done, the most you will see boarding and deboarding - in most aircraft that do not have an EFB to allow for Passengers, would be approximately 1 - 4 passengers.  With this setting set to 100% you will get the max PAX payload that the aircraft can accommodate. REMEMBER to do this, or your simulation immersion will be hindered to the lesser load of the aircraft.

**** IMPORTANT ****

You may or may not experience an alignment issue with your aircraft once you've picked a parking slot to start off in.  GSX Pro does not automatically put you into the parking slot that was created in the profile, it chooses the default spot that the developer created.  A way to compensate for this, according to the GSX Pro Discord mediators, before you start your simming experience activate the GSX Main Menu and choose 0 - Reposition Aircraft, then choose 1 - Reposition here at gate.  This will place your aircraft’s front two bogies onto the created spot in GSX Pro.  Your alignment is now correct and your belt loaders, and stairs will line up with the PAX waypoint pathways that was created in GSX Pro.

According to GSX Discord you should always do this in any GSX Pro Profile you are using.  Not just mine, but any profile that is created and downloaded here in  A good rule of thumb to always practice...


I have been getting a lot of messages sent to me at my upload pages.
