Twin Otter

The core of North-Wright’s charter service, these aircraft are considered by many as the best bush planes in the world as they can land anywhere there’s water, ice or a clear, level surface.

Able to take off or land on short distances with up to 18 people or a large volume of freight gives the Twin Otter a major advantage when serving Northern customers. Whether on tires, floats or skis, businesses such as tourism outfitters and operators, flight-seeing, canoe trips, general touring, mining exploration companies, and oil and gas developers depend on Twin Otters to provide logistical support in remote locations.
