Press Release
Tara Air is pleased to announce the addition of a factory new Viking DHC6-400 Twin Otter aircraft to it’s fleet. In 2005 Viking Air Ltd., Canada purchased the Type Certificate of the legendary DHC6-300 Twin Otter from De Havilland. It is the most versatile and successful STOL aircraft ever built and it was brought back into production in 2008 as the new Viking Series 400 Twin Otter. The Series 400 Twin Otter picks up where the original de Havilland Series 300 Twin Otter left off, introducing upgraded Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34 engines, fully integrated Honeywell Primus Apex digital avionics suite, use of composite materials and approximately 800 other modifications incorporated to improve on the original Series 300 aircraft. The Series 400 boasts cutting edge avionics technology with an integrated full glass cockpit that features the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and a full colour Weather Radar. However like it’s predecessor the Series 400 retains it’s ability to safely operate in the most remote and rugged environments in the world, from the sub-zero Antarctica, the hottest deserts in North Africa, the open waters of the Indian Ocean to the mountainous region of the Himalayas. No other STOL aircraft in the world has proven to be as versatile. Once released into service, Tara Air will operate the Viking Twin Otter into the remote Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) airfields of the Nepal, such as Lukla, Phaplu, Jomsom, Dolpo and Simikot etc. where it plays a vital role in transporting foreign trekkers, local inhabitants and foodstuffs to and from these remote regions. Tara Air intends to gradually replace it’s entire fleet of Series 300 and Dornier Do228-212 aircraft with the new Viking Series 400 aircraft. It is committed to serving the remote, rural Nepal where since 1998 it has been playing a vital role in connecting these remote regions with the rest of the country. Tara Air is scheduled take delivery of it’s second factory new Viking 400 aircraft in September 2015.
