Twin Otter 300 DHC 6-300
Engines:Two Pratt and Whitney PT6A-27 Turboprop
DeHavilland aircraft are renowned for their rugged construction reliability and versatility. Coupled with the reliability of the Pratt and Whitney PT6 turboprop engine they are a force to be reckoned with.
The Twin Otter is no exception and they are used by as diverse operators as the U.S. Army and the British Antarctic Survey.
The Twin Otter was designed to operate in short unprepared strips in Northern Canada and can carry up to 1.5 tons of cargo. This makes it an ideal aircraft for our game park network and also for transporting film crews with their equipment.
Regional Air Service presently operates one Twin Otter. As with other DeHavilland aircraft the Twin Otter is a "STOL" aircraft. "STOL" stands for "Short Take-off and Landing". These versatile aircraft are able to operate from all the airstrips on our schedule network.
