Twin Otter Ingenuity and Adaptability

In these unsettling times, we have found that focusing on ingenuity and adaptability has kept us strong and positive.  Regardless of what is happening, we are maintaining our high standards of quality and are appreciating the depth of knowledge in our staff, and the resources that we can rely on.

It turns out that innovation and ingenuity have not been stymied as a result of the pandemic. Developments that were underway have been brought to completion and can now be shared.  See our Emergency Roof Escape Hatch

Adaptability is evidenced in our response to supply chain and logistical challenges, while new Service Bulletin (SB) requirements on top of Covid-19 operational requirements have been met with in-house solutions and resources.  See our Exchange Flight Controls

It may be difficult to be optimistic given the very real challenges faced by our industry, but a “glass half full” look at uncertain times can see opportunities for increased versatility, profitability and reliability in operations.  See our Avionics upgrades

Twin Otter Emergency Roof Escape Hatch

For Twin Otter operators who because of regulatory requirement, or operational needs, still have the OEM Viking cabin roof escape hatch.

The replacement part RMA-C6FS2413-11 along with the STC are in stock and ready to ship.

Spending a fortune on analog instrument repair and gyro overhauls?

The old electro-mechanical instrumentation that has served the Twin Otter fleet well for over fifty years has reached the end of their economical life. Attempting to coax a few more years of service out of these systems is only going to cause heartache and expense. It’s time to invest it reliability and modernity.

Modern avionics systems will increase profitability, versatility and reliability. Isn’t it time your cockpit looked like this?
