Viking Air has celebrated the production of its 50th Twin Otter Series 400 at both its corporate headquarters in Victoria, BC, and the aircraft assembly facility in Calgary, AB, Canada.
Viking has recorded sales of the Series 400 to 23 countries worldwide, with 18 different customers receiving deliveries thus far. To date, the largest customer is CAVU Aviation Finance of the United States with 14 aircraft on order, while the largest commercial operator is MASwings, a subsidiary to Malaysian Airlines, which has already received four of six Series 400 Twin Otter aircraft on order, and will receive the 50th Viking production aircraft with its fifth delivery in early April.
“It’s not uncommon to forget where you’ve come from, so to take a moment and reflect on the journey can be awe-inspiring. When I consider the achievements and the effort put forward by our entire team to make this programme a success, it’s truly something to be proud of,” remarked David Curtis, Viking president & CEO.
