Sept. 15, 2009 – IKHANA Group, Inc. has announced the FAA’s approval of a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC SA02252LA) to RW Martin, Inc for the DHC-6-200 Twin Otter. The RWMI DHC-6-200HG STC increases the payload capabilities of the basic DHC-6-200 aircraft approximately 900 pounds, or nearly 8%, to 12,500 pounds. Operations are allowed with the full 620 shaft horsepower of its PT6A-27 engines so as to effectively transform the operation of a DHC-6-200 to match the capabilities of a DHC-6-300 aircraft.
The DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft is a workhorse platform supporting regional airlines and special missions operations worldwide. This newly certified modification allows regional operators an increase in profitability with added revenue generation from increased passenger and cargo capabilities. Operators also benefit from the increased efficiency and operating characteristics of the modification.
