Twin Otter nears certification

VIKING SERIES 400 TWIN OTTER certification work has entered the final phase towards the goal of achieving Transport Canada and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, expected in the next 90 days.  While this work continues, production is well advanced with seven aircraft in various stages of final assembly at Viking’s Calgary, Alberta facility.  In Victoria, major sub-assembly components are in work for the next set of six aircraft, in line with the projected build rate of 12 aircraft scheduled for 2010.  Vityaz Avia Corporation of Moscow is the newest Twin Otter Series 400 customer, purchasing two of the commuter configured aircraft.  The first flight of the Series 400 technical demonstrator took place on 1 October 2008 and the order book now stands at around 40. www.vikingair.com
