Viking Air DHC-6 Twin Otter

    De Havilland stopped building the Twin Otter more than 20 years ago, but hundreds are still flying, and now a Canadian company is building brand-new updated versions. The tough twin turboprop can handle short runways, and it can be accessorized with skis or amphibious floats to reach just about anywhere on the planet. The cabin is more than 18 feet long with plenty of capacity for fishing gear and friends. The Otter is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-34 turbine engines.
