While it does build the updated DHC-2 Beaver, the DHC-2T Turbo Beaver, it does not build a DHC-3 Otter. It does build the DHC-6 Twin Otter, Series 400. Others it supplies parts and support for. It does this under it's Viking Air logo.

Viking already has the water bombers for many that they have Downsview, great projects may yet happen.
It would not surprise me if they try and get funding to go after the Canadair Regional Jet. I know they could turn that around and make it profitable again.

Glad to hear that a piece of history will soon return to the sky !!

It will be great if they reintroduce improved versions of the dash 300. A viable craft for shorter runways . Great potential for sale in Africa and small island nations that have such runway's.

Northern Canada and Alaska also have a lot of short runways.

I'm glad Longview is bringing back the namesake. All the craft they make/service are ex De Havilland, so it makes it "home" again. BTW, which link is broken, matt?
