Glacier Bay Flightseeing from Skagway

A few minutes after a quick check-in (be prepared to state your weight), we were escorted out to our aircraft, N232SA. These Twin Otters are both DHC-6-300 VistaLiners, built about a decade before production of Twin Otters ceased in 1988. The Twin Otter is widely considered to be the most successful aircraft of its type, and these Series 300s were the pinnacle of its development, with a pair of powerful PT6A-27 turbine engines. The VistaLiner configuration provides the extra-large windows that everybody wants when flightseeing.
