									DHC-6 Twin Otter X

The De Havillan Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter is one of the most versitile aircraft ever designed. Still Canada's most
successful commercial aircraft program with more than 800 built, the Twin Otter remains popular for its rugged
construction and useful STOL performance.

The De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter (aka Twotter) is one of those aircraft that should have been replaced
by some new aircraft at least a decade ago. But it's not. The DHC-6 still flies and in fact the amount of registered is
risen at this moment. The main reason for it is the fact it is just as much at home at the poles as it is in the tropics. It
is used to maintain routes to airports up to 9000 feet and to ferry between islands. It will fly everywhere using
wheels, floats or skis. It's a legend.

This STOL twin turboprop commuter airliner was in production between 1964 and 1988, with over 800 build it has
been the most successful aircraft build in Canada. The model is currently been upgraded to a 400 version by Viking
Air who holds the type certificate for the Twin Otter.

The high end model presented by Aerosoft and partly designed by SibWings includes all versions, and advanced
avionics set. It is perfectly suited for use on some of our most favorite scenery products such as Lukla X and
German Airfields 1. The gauges include two high end Bendix King systems that provide near perfect navigation and
communication capabilities. Of course the original panel is also an option (though far less advanced)
