The Norseman is an example of an early bush aircraft-machine that operated in the vast wilderness of northern Canada and Alaska and contributed much to the development of those areas. As with more famous types such as the Douglas DC-3, the vast majority of bush airplanes were not originally designed to meet wartime needs, but used in that capacity with the U. S. Army Air Forces when needed.
