The newest member of our fleet seats up to eight passengers and had expanded the range of charter options for our customers. Swiss-made with a single-turboprop, our PC-12 is a smooth flier thanks to its unique design and the fully pressurized cabin allows for a higher cruising altitude. You’ll literally fly above the clouds. The flat cabin floor and on-board bathroom make this a truly executive experience.
DHC-2 de Havilland Beaver
The six-passenger piston de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver is the most successful floatplane ever built, and has been the mainstay of our fleet since the early 1960’s. The Beaver sports a thick wing for maximum lift, a sturdy structure and a powerful, reliable 450-horsepower Pratt Whitney R-985 radial engine. The last brand new Beaver came off the line in 1967, however our fleet of Beavers have all been meticulously overhauled by our world-renown aircraft maintenance facility.
de Havilland Turbine Beaver
Our piston-powered Beavers have six passenger seats, five at windows. Our turbine-powered Beavers offer six window seats, and the installation of a Pratt and Whitney PT6A-135 turbine engine makes the best floatplane ever built even better by providing 680 shaft-horsepower. This results in a larger carrying capacity, a higher climb rate, and faster cruise speed.
DHC-3 de Havilland Otter
Following the success of the de Havilland Beaver, the turbine single ten-passenger de Havilland DHC-3 Otter is one of the most versatile and dependable floatplanes operating today. Originally designated the “King Beaver”, this aircraft eventually became known as the DHC-3 Otter as it’s bigger in every dimension than its older sibling. The single engine de Havilland Turbine Otter is the largest, most powerful aircraft in our fleet with a range of 500 miles at a normal cruise speed of 134 mph. And like all our Beaver’s, our fleet of Otters have all been overhauled and incorporate many enhanced features.
Cessna 208 Caravan & Grand Caravan
The eight to nine-passenger Cessna 208 Caravan and Grand Caravan are modern passenger/cargo land plane aircraft that operate out of Seattle/Boeing Field. The original workhorse aircraft with a rugged, durable design that offers versatility and stellar performance, the Caravan’s speed and range capabilities are unusually high. Our Caravans are fully IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) certified and equipped, including GPS and Color Weather Radar.
The Cessna 180 is a small, two to three-passenger versatile and dependable floatplane that is a favorite to charter as it is the most economical price/mile. Produced between 1953 and 1981, our Cessna 180 aircraft are day VFR (Visual Flight Rules) certified and equipped, including GPS, and have a maximum range of 500 miles at a cruise speed of 130 mph.
The PA-18 Super Cub has been our training aircraft since 2003. We have two Super Cubs, N9666P which has a Lycoming O-320 150 horsepower engine and N390CC which was built by Cub Crafters with a Lycoming 0-360 180 horsepower engine. These Super Cubs were chosen to be a part of our fleet because they offer a wonderful introduction to the art of flying seaplanes.
