The Adventure
We have new aircraft to fly (well, new to us, anyway…)! Com-Central Bush Flights now possesses three De Havilland Twin Otters - tundra tired, wheels/skis and amphibious! Our first mission with this aircraft will take us to six remote science stations for re-supply. Five out of the six are temporary camps that are studying various affects of climate change on the area’s glaciers, and the other is a return to the Northern British Columbia High Altitude Geomagnetic Observatory. The winds aloft are much lighter this time, so landing up there will be easier than it was last time. The turboprops on the Otter are much better suited to high altitude operations than the recip powered Maule as well.

Don't forget to download and install the Twin Otter pack Here

Hope to see you there,
