Rough and rugged terrain, deep valleys, rain forests and high mountain ranges make travel by road in PNG virtually impossible. With no real alternative means of travel, people are reliant on flying to enable them to reach other places but also for the transportation of their goods and supplies.
With the capacity to carry more, the Twin Otter is the ideal aircraft for the high volume of freight and passenger movement in PNG.
Powered by Avtur (aviation turbine fuel) with a twin turbine (PT6A-34) engine, the high wing Twin Otter is equipped with dual Garmin IFR GPS navigation for safe and reliable flying.
The large cargo doors ease loading of freight and the spacious interior enables bulky items such as building materials, engines and even livestock to be transported. Sacks of coffee, a valuable source of income for many communities, are transported to market to be sold, generating an income for many families.
