KODIAK, the new standard in 10 place turboprops, shines in applications where there is a need to operate comfortably, even at the edge of the performance envelope. Its rugged construction combines superior STOL (short takeoff and landing) performance and high useful load.
The KODIAK can take off in under 1,000 feet (304 m) at full gross weight and climb at over 1,300 feet per minute (396,2 m/min)
The robust landing gear and 19 inch propeller clearance (~48 cm) allow the KODIAK to easily handle unimproved airstrips. Low speed control is essential. The discontinuous leading edge technology brings remarkable control at slow speeds, making difficult airstrips possible. It does more than fly – it gets you on the ground when there isn’t much ground to work with. At touchdown, the KODIAK only needs 705 feet to bring the full gross weight of 7,305 pounds to a stop – even on rough, rumbly, bumpy strips. We designed the KODIAK to thrive on the abuse of a rough airstrip or gravel riverbed.
In the environment in which the KODIAK was designed to operate, turbine power isn’t only just nice, it’s necessary. Time-tested and proven, the Pratt & Whitney PT6-34 engine delivers 750 shp to handle the flight without breaking a sweat. The KODIAK is an aircraft you can trust – it will get you there, and back.
A wide range of options are available such as the external cargo compartment, TKS ice protection, Stormscope, Weather Radar, TCAS, and even a jump package. Customers can choose their interior package and additional cabin accessories and refinements, making the KODIAK perfect as a workhorse or a comfortable executive/passenger transport.
KODIAKs are in service around the globe with charter operators, corporate operators, personal owners, skydiving operations, governments and humanitarian organizations.
