As Diverse as Your Needs

From the thrill of skydiving to the relaxation of “last mile” transportation to island resorts, the Twin Otter provides a comfortable and versatile solution to private and recreational owners' needs. The Twin Otter is used for private and recreational operations in 12 countries and offers excellent operating economics, global parts support and flexible configurations.

Taking You Places Others Can't

Used in 30 countries on six continents, the Twin Otter is trusted by operators to take them where others can’t – from barely there, remote airstrips to balmy seaplane terminals on hard to reach islands. With customizable interiors, plus residual value better than any commercial single or multi engine turboprop or piston, the Twin Otter has proven a flexible partner for private owners.

The Twin Otter is one of my favorite planes to jump out of, and I feel very lucky to jump at a drop zone that operates one. I’ve been jumping for 17 years and have 6800 jumps to my record, and I’ve jumped out of a lot of Twin Otters – it’s the perfect skydiving plane, thanks to its big cargo door and strong lifting power.
