Closed Cockpit

The Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker was attractive to many bush pilots since it had good lift capacity, could reliably fly great distances, and could stay aloft for long periods of time. A Vega and two Bellanca aircraft

The Bellanca also had a closed cabin for pilot, freight and passengers, which was necessary when flying into the northern bush. Like other closed-cabin aircraft of the period, the Pacemaker took air into the cabin through a vent, and in winter the intake air pipe ran along the exhaust from the engine so the cabin could be heated. This was a very significant improvement over the open cockpit aircraft.
