The Viking Air DHC-6 Twin Otter, formerly known as the De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, stands as a 19-passenger utility aircraft celebrated for its Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capabilities. The inception of this aircraft line dates back to 1964, drawing inspiration from the preceding single-engine DHC-3. Its versatility has led to widespread adoption across various sectors, serving purposes such as medevac transport, commuter passenger or cargo airliner, and being frequently employed in skydiving operations. The DHC-6 Twin Otter achieved success through features like its fixed tricycle undercarriage, twin Pratt & Whitney PT6A-20 turboprop engines, and impressive rate of climb. Notably, its popularity as a bush plane surged due to the enhanced reliability of turboprop power and the improved performance inherent in a twin-engine configuration.
