Why we chose the Twin Otter for our fleet of Costa Rica Green Airways
The Twin Otter is the perfect aircraft to fly in the tropical climate of Costa Rica. The safety department of Costa Rica Green Airways, after extensive research on the subject, chose it as the ideal aircraft for the tropical climate and the airport infrastructure of Costa Rica.
Today we want to share the story of the Twin Otter.
The Twin Otter is a powerful utility aircraft developed by the Canadian company De Havilland, considered the most successful aeronautical program in Canada. The Havilland Canada company had been looking for a replacement for the single-engine Havilland Canada DHC-3 Otter. Two engines not only provided greater safety but also increased the load capacity, maintaining their capacity for takeoffs and landings on short runways.
The first flight was made in May 20, 1965, becoming a successful utility aircraft, designed to operate on short courses, has demonstrated its great versatility and ability to comfortably transport 19 passengers and two pilots.
Equipped with two turboprop engines, which makes it very efficient, reliable and a top performer, ideal for tropical climates such as Costa Rica.
