Kodiak 100

FLY VFE 4K CONNECT.png

Modern construction, a glass cockpit, and a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 turboprop engine combined with short field performance, multi-role versatility, and a really cool name. Daher’s Kodiak 100 is a modern day bushplane with power and attitude. 

History

Making its maiden flight on October 16, 2004, the type received FAA certification in 2007. Quest, the company behind it, intended the airplane to be used on rough airstrips and in tough to get into locations with an eye towards some of the missionary work that interested customers were after.

In 2019, Daher, a French company best known for their TBM series of turboprops, bought Quest and has since made their two aircraft line-up a centrepiece of their aviation operations. The TBM offered to customers who need a fast airplane and the Kodiak available for those wanting something that can get into rougher airstrips and locations.

FLY VFE Connect operates a fleet of 5 x K100 series aircraft, with a further order of 5 more expected to be placed by the end of 2023 as we look to expand our bush flying services around the globe.
