Description of TWIN OTTER DHC 6
History of the Twin Otter DHC 6
The Twin Otter DHC 6 from Canadian aircraft manufacturer Viking Air can carry 19 passengers. This STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) utility aircraft was originally developed by de Havilland Canada, and the aircraft was produced from 1965 to 1988.
This aircraft is equipped with Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34 engines, amphibious floats and a modernised Honeywell Apex avionics. With its high rate of climb, it is often used as a commuter passenger airliner as well for air freight and MEDEVAC missions.
The Twin Otter DHC-6 is a very versatile aircraft that can be equipped with wheels, skis or floats for connections between islands where this aircraft is particularly used. Highly adaptable, this aircraft can get you to even the most remote of airports, such as the famous Gustaf III Airport at St Barthélemy, which has a short runway right by the beach. In fact, this adaptability makes it a very popular choice for private flights in the West Indies.
Rent a turboprop with AEROAFFAIRES and enjoy complete flexibility
Turboprops offer not only the advantage of being a more cost-effective alternative to private jets, they are also more flexible when it comes to your destination. The Twin Otter’s compact size and adaptable engineering allow you to land on short runways and rough terrain. This makes it ideal for island-hopping, emergency medical transport, aerial photography or factory visits.
Why not charter this small plane for a private flight to Barra Airport in the Scottish Islands from London or to hop on a private plane from the Dominican Republic to the tiny Princess Juliana airport in St Martin?
