DeHavilland DHC-6 Super Twin Otter
Capacity: 23 Jumpers
This 200 Series Super Twin Otter is our flagship. See why Sky Team Aviation, Inc. is changing the way skydivers look at jumpships. This is the nicest and most thoroughly maintained Twin Otter in skydiving.
CSC is the proud home of the nicest Twin Otter in the skydiving industry. This aircraft was designed from the ground up to be light and fast - exactly what you, the skydiver, demands. Check out the Sky Team Aviation website for detailed photos of the rebuilding project. The entire process took nearly 7 months to complete and we feel that it was worth the wait. Come check it out - we know you'll agree!
Sky Team's Twin Otter is equipped with all of the latest in avionics equipment. Garmin radio stack complete with the latest GNS430 navigational GPS, terrain & traffic avoidance technology, and real-time weather information - we ensure your safety to levels that other skydiving centers could never achieve.
The cabin of the Twin Otter is roomy enough for 23 skydivers to enjoy a quick ride to 14,000 feet. Sky Team Aviation works hard to maintain this aircraft to higher (part 135) standards than the FAA requires for skydiving and general aviation.
The Twin Otter is equipped with two powerful, turbine engines (not piston). Extremely strong, reliable, and quiet Pratt & Whitney PT6A-27 engines. There is a significant difference in power and exterior noise compared to most other skydiving aircraft.
