“We are pleased to welcome another customer to the growing Twin Otter Series 400 family, and trust Aerostar Leasing will be as satisfied with their new aircraft as our repeat customers are,” commented David Curtis, Viking president & CEO. He added, “Aerostar is well versed in the aviation industry, so we are confident that they will be successful incorporating the new Series 400 Twin Otters into their operations.”
With Twin Otter Series 400 in operation in 16 countries and a backlog exceeding $400M, the Series 400 is now confirmed as the best-selling next generation turboprop aircraft in its class.
