A bush plane or bushplane or bush airplane is a general aviation aircraft used to provide unscheduled passenger and freight services to remote, undeveloped areas of a country, such as the Alaskan tundra, the Canadian north, the African bush or the Australian Outback. They are used where ground transportation infrastructure is inadequate or doesn't exist.
Since a bushplane is defined by how it is used, a wide variety of different aircraft with different configurations have been used over the years as such, however certain features are desirable, especially on aircraft specifically designed as bushplanes.
Designed to be fitted with floats or skis to permit operation from water or snow.
High wings ease loading and unloading.
Conventional or "taildragger" landing gear.
Short runway requirements.
Very large, low-pressure tundra tires to operate from broken ground.
