As one of the most popular single-engine high-wing aircraft of its time, the DHC-3 Otter is a very fun aircraft to fly.
Sharing many similarities to the Beaver, this improves upon it by making use of a larger wingspan, a greater fuselage, and a deeper operating weight.
Powered by an R-1340 radial engine, this can give you up to 11 passenger spaces as well as numerous spaces for cargo such as ski equipment, motocross bikes and various other pieces of equipment.
