About the Twin Otter

The DeHavilland Twin Otter (DHC-6) is a highly maneuverable, versatile aircraft. Known as a “bush” plane, the Twin Otter is capable of take-offs from short runways and quick climbs to altitude, and is the industry standard for hauling skydivers to altitude.

Nothing matches the versatility of the Blackhawk Caravan. With it’s powerful upgraded engine, the Blackhawk Caravan can take 18 jumpers to 13,000′ as quickly as a Twin Otter.
