In 1965, de Havilland Canada developed the DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft - a high winged, un-pressurized twin engine turbine powered aircraft with fixed tricycle land gear. Designed as a rugged Short Take Off and Landing ("STOL") commuter, the Twin Otter was capable of carrying passengers and cargo into remote unimproved locations, including ski and water based operations.

The aircraft were sold around the world to customers operating in the harshest environments, including subzero Antarctica, the hottest deserts of North Africa, the mountainous regions of the Himalayas, and the open water of the Indian Ocean archipelagos. A testimony to its rugged construction and incredible STOL performance, the Twin Otter became the best-selling 19 passenger aircraft of all time, still unmatched for its dependability and versatility.
