Perhaps anybody has any suggestion about what versions and liveries we should make? 

The first person to say 'glass cockpit' is banned for ever. We really want this to be a old style sturdy aircraft.


I would really appreciate to get a Tara Air (aka Yeti Air) or Nepal Airlines livery.

 

If you need some high resolution images from both sides please let me know. I took the below pictures and many more during my Nepal trip and can provide you with images if needed.

Winair for sure!

Winair is indeed a must have ;) One of the largest DHC6-300 series carrier still flying them daily in and out of SXM

Air Antilles Express and Air Calin would also be nice to see on the same series.

-300 Amphibian wise, anything from Transmaldivian to Manta Air and Maldivian.

Harbour Air for sure! Had the privilege of flying on one a few years back and the experience made me fall in love with this aircraft.

Skybus standard wheels please I can supply as many photos as you could like :D and Verson 300/310

Float verson would also be nice with a TMA.

Noticed also the texture of the de-ice boots looks strange if you required any photos of these do let me know (Y)

Like several have mentioned, Loganair would be great to see, but I'd love the old Loganair livery, fits the period nicely...

In addition, MANX were an operator back in the day too...  (Albeit leased from Loganair if I remember)

Yep, I never flew with them but they had a really varied selection of A/C over the years. Used to see them coming into Sydenham (EGAC) when I was a kid.

Fiji Airways to purchase three new Viking Air DHC-6-400 Twin Otters for Fiji  Link | World Airline News

 

I have flown in this many a times when visiting Fiji. My 7 year old used to sit next to me when I flew this in P3D. Imagine his surprise when the last time we were in Fiji, he got to experience a flight in this. The look on his face was priceless.

I'm hanging out for a Caribbean livery as well. Air Antilles, Winair or any others from the area would be awesome.

Just keep checking here.   Might not always apply but we tend top pick people who have a high reputation status on the forums.

I hope Mark at Almost Aviation is getting to beta test:

He has a dedicated Twin Otter cockpit with throttles overhead, and is very familiar with the previous Aerosoft Twin Otters.

I am with Brian V and think for the PNW that Harbour Air and Kenmore are essential! After all Victoria is where Viking is based. I love the idea of the CC138 RCAF colours as well. I flew the Comox based Search and Rescue Buffalo in FSX extensively and loved doing a high speed pass over towns and airports.

 

Ha ha. I read Abriael s post about JA 8799. My son was a FSR for Viking and was dispatched to southern Siberia to work on a fleet of Twin Otters there. Their opinion was ( Russian accent) " Pretty good plane, built kind of light but still pretty good plane! " He also worked in Peru and previously had run Cessna Caravans but found the Twin Otters much more durable. He has a new appreciation of what they will put up with and still fly.

 

My two cents, Buzz
