Based on the design of the iconic DHC-6 Twin Otter, the DHC-7 "Dash 7" was created as a larger, four-engined aircraft best suited to use as a regional airliner. Seating up to a maximum of 50 passengers, the Dash 7 was used by both commercial airline operators and militaries throughout the world. First flown in 1975, a total of 113 aircraft were delivered between 1978 and 1988.
Viking owns the Type Certificate for the DHC-7 and provides parts and support services to the fleet worldwide. If you would like more information on Viking's support for this aircraft, please visit our Customer Support page for details.
