MilViz' DHC-3T Turbo Otter

The turbine version of the DHC-3

One of the classic bush planes is the de Havilland DHC-3 Otter. Many airframes of this robust plane were subsequently converted by replacing the radial piston pounder with the Pratt & Whitney PT6A turbine engine. MilViz has responded to consumer requests and released this turbine version, the DHC3- Turbo. Let’s take a look at how it stacks up…

The addition of REX WX Advantage weather radar, engine icing modelling and KAP-140 autopilot adds versatility to the Otter’s repertoire.

Built to work

De Havilland Canada first produced the original DHC-3 Otter in the early 1950s with it designed to be a ‘1 tonne truck’ in the remote, rugged and short airstrips and lakes. So successful was the design, it was ordered by operators from the Arctic to the Antarctic – and everywhere in between.
