Notes

STOL turboprop airliner and utility transport aircraft. In service since 1966 (-200 since 1968, -300 since 1969). Fixed undercariage. DE HAVILLAND CANADAs most successful commercial design. DHC-6-200 with extended nose and DHC-6-300 with more powerful engines. Production ceased in 1988. DHC-6-300: Length 15,77 m MTOW 5670 kg. In April 2007, Viking Air launched the Twin Otter Series 400 production program - over 60 aircraft have been delivered and are currently in operation in 26 countries worldwide.
