Will Distribute DHC Beaver And Otter Parts In Alaskan
Viking Air Limited told ANN Thursday the company recently
selected Seaplanes North of Anchorage, Alaska as its material sales
and distribution center for DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter parts to
better serve its Alaskan customers. The decision comes as a
customer service enhancement effort to facilitate faster overnight
deliveries to the region and to eliminate potential customs
"After much discussion, it was determined there was a good fit
between our two companies to move ahead with putting this service
in the Alaska", says David Curtis, Viking’s president and
CEO. "We look forward to this new collaboration, improving and
enhancing our customer support to the Alaskan operators."
"We are excited to represent Viking by stocking Beaver and Otter
parts to support local operators", says Jeff Walker, Seaplanes
North’s owner and manager. "We specialize in customer service
based on honesty and fairness and we look forward to providing the
same service to Viking’s customers."
In business since 2000, Seaplanes North is a well-established
parts distributor and an aircraft maintenance provider located at
Lake Hood, the busiest seaplane base in the world.
Viking launched the all new DHC-6 Series 400 Twin Otter last
year, with over 40 orders to date and deliveries to begin in 2009.
Viking also provides OEM support for the worldwide fleet of de
Havilland heritage line of aircraft (DHC-1 through DHC-7).
