Viking Delivers First of Six Twin Otters to Vietnamese Navy

Viking Delivers First of Six Twin Otters to Vietnamese Navy

Patience, diligence and a lot of hard work paid off Thursday as Viking Air handed over the first of six Twin Otter aircraft to the Vietnamese navy in a ceremony at one of its hangars at Victoria International Airport in British Columbia, Canada. It’s taken more than three years and more than a few leaps of faith for the first aircraft – white, blue, yellow and red with a small version of the Vietnamese flag on the tail – to be ready for delivery.

“It’s a very big day for us,” Viking CEO Dave Curtis told a small crowd that featured several members of Vietnam’s naval brass, ministry of defence staff and Vietnamese navy pilots who are in Victoria being trained to fly the aircraft.
