The DHC-6 “Twin Otter” is a versatile twin (duh) turboprop STOL transport that first took to the skies in 1965. Well known for its versatility, and STOL capability, the Twin Otter has been used as a Bush Plane all its life. The Versatile Series 400 Edition is built by Viking Air on special request to this day.

Why a Twin Otter?

-Excellent STOL Characteristics
-Bush Plane Versatility
-High and Low Speed Envelope
-Off Airport Operation
-High rate of Climb
-Reliable Turboprop engine
-Amphibious Versatility
-Effortlessly Access STOLPorts

Did we mention that it was versatile?

The twin otter can be easily fitted with Trike Gear, Floats, and Skis!


Controls:

-AG1 Left Engine
-AG2 Right Engine
-AG3 Reverse Thrust
-AG4 Beacon Lights
-AG5 Landing Lights
-LandingGear Retracts Gear

Pilot Notes:

Stalls at around 60-70 mph
DO NOT enter a full stall on the landing
Max Speed is 205 mph
Climbs very well
Yes that water in the screenshot is photoshopped


HUGE THANKS to CRJ900Pilot for the floats

Thanks, and enjoy your adventure,

    Feel free, just know that building the livery for this plane took a long time and may be difficult to remove @Boeing7472
