The DHC-6 Twin Otter is the ultimate go-anywhere aircraft. It was built to reliably and safely go where other aircraft don't stand a chance.
It can land on tarmac runways, mudflats, water, sand, snow, ice and does regular scheduled flights in both of the Polar Regions and to airports at extreme altitude as well as on tropical islands. Optionally equipped with skies, tundra tires and floats there will be no place where the trusty Twin Otter will not be able to take you. With versions for cargo and passengers, 100 and 300 models and different engines we cover the whole range of this amazing aircraft.
One of the main reasons the Twin Otter still performing well after years is its rugged design. A fixed landing gear that is strong, light and cannot fail. A tall wing that keeps the engines clear of debris and is designed for STOL operation.

Purchased this plane few days ago because I just love how the seaplane looks like. I have some great days flying it on Maldives and Seychelles islands! The wheel version is absolutely fantastic to land on short airports like the ones in Papouasia. I just need now to find out how to set the reverse on my Thrustmaster joystick; if someone know how to do, please tell me. It's my favourite plane at the moment with a lot of versions and liveries. My first trip with floats version here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2289wxbKw20
Have they sorted the engine sounds out yet?

They improved the sounds in December 2022

They brought out a new sound set, that obviously improved the sounds in some ways. But they didn't fix the - in my opinion - MAIN engine sound problem and they won't, because they don't "hear" and understand the problem. I've tried to discuss that in the forums by discribing it very exactly. But they either didn't react at all or reacted in a pretty "uncomfortable" manner, which was a mix between a very indirect "We don't hear any problem here" and "How dare you criticize the sound of an aircraft just by video". Might be possible that many people don't care about the enigne sound problem too much, but for my personal case, it's beyond me how they can talk away such an obvious sound error.
If they fix the engine sounds it's worth it. Needs a short nose variant with tundra tires though
Own it, it's not bad, quite fun to fly, just wish it had the GTN750 as an option too, Aerosoft said it might happen (I think that was prior to release tho) they in the mean time decided against it, GRRR.
Worth it tho.
