A Look Inside a Twin Otter Sea Plane, and Some Technical Specifications

Total Croatia News

Although we are covering the sea plane story in Dalmatia, I will confess that I have never flown in one, been in one, or even seen one. And I guess I am not aone in that. 

When European Coastal Airlines starts operations next year, they will be flying the most modern sea plane fleet on this, the first scheduled sea plane service in Europe. It is a little exciting, especially if you have been living on an island for ten years…

So what are they like inside? The main plane the company will be flying will be Twin Otter DHC – 6-300, with a capacity of 19 passengers.

With a top speed of 160 knots and a range of 1434 kilometres, this could be a really fun and flexible way to travel…

The Twin Otter is a high winged, un-pressurized, twin engine turbine powered aircraft ideally suited to operate in all conditions and climates. Around the world in jungles, deserts, mountains, the Arctic, and anywhere where rugged reliability and short-take-off-and-landing are required you will find the hard working Twin Otter. Adding to that versatility the Twin Otter can be fitted with wheels, skis or floats.

One of the nice additional features of the ECA service is that you will be able to download a recording of your own individual flight from the cockpit after you have landed. With the stunning views along the route, that will be a pretty nice souvenir of the transfer – a little better than fighting your way on the bus and ferry… 

A little more technical info on the DHC-6 Series below. Why not follow the latest on the ECA Facebook page, which is fast approaching 10,000 fans?
