Air Transportation

From hot air balloons to eagle-powered contraptions, for centuries, man’s dream has been to touch the sky. Thanks to pioneering individuals in the early 20th century, flying became a reality.

Stamps featuring air transportation in Malaysia issued as a tribute to our country’s involvement in aviation, showcasing five aircrafts from different sectors, each bearing its own significance in history.

GAF N22 Nomad

The GAF N22 Nomad is a twin-engine, multipurpose utility transport. A star in its own right, the aircraft was not only featured in a television series, but its design also served as a foundation for future coastal patrol aircraft.

De Havilland Canada DHC 7-110

Also fondly know as the Dash 7, the short take-off and landing DHC 7-110 is a versatile aircraft capable of flying and landing in city areas. Thanks to the noise restrictions in the 70s, DHC 7-110 was built with slower rotating blades to substantially reduce its sound.

Shorts SC7 Skyvan

A utility box-car aircraft, it is used mainly for short-haul freight cargo transport and sometimes even for sky-diving. The aircraft’s amazing landing capabilities makes it popular and highly sought after by a variety of civilian operators.

Airspeed Consul

In 1947, Malaysia’s inaugural commercial flight seated only 5 passengers in the twin engine Airspeed Consul, flying from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. The Airspeed Consul has since made way for more technologically advanced aircraft.

Douglas DC-3

The new technology of its time brought a vastly improved aircraft – the Douglas DC-3. The aircraft’s significantly reduced flight time popularized air travel, and in 1947, our country’s pioneering commercial airline carrier added the 21-seater to its steadily growing fleet.
