Overview

Hangar 9’s Twin Otter is a scale model of the UV-18 'Twin Otter' is the military version of the DeHavilland DHC-6. The trim scheme is based on the three UV-18B planes used by the US Air Force Academy cadet parachuting program which carry a pilot, copilot and up to 17 jumpers, and are the only three owned by the Air Force. Although this is a multi-engine model, the high wing design and Clark Y airfoil improve low speed handling and provide stable flight characteristics which make this a great first-time twin for intermediate to advanced pilots.

The aircraft also includes fixed gear and large landing flaps to provide easy and fun landings without the addition of complicated landing gear being necessary.
