Enhanced flight safety, cabin comfort, operational abilities, construction quality, and maintenance coverage are all on tap in Daher’s new Kodiak 100 Series III sport and utility turboprop. Daher introduced the plane in late March at its U.S. facility in Sandpoint, Idaho, where it also made the first delivery to owners Rick and Adam Ross.

The French company, which claims to be the oldest aircraft manufacturer in operation today, began manufacturing the single-engine, all-terrain Kodiak 100 in 2019 when it acquired Quest Aircraft. The Kodiak 100 is certified in nearly 70 countries and is used for air taxi, recreational and leisure, business, and humanitarian applications.

Upgrades & Enhancements

The float-ready, 10-seat Kodiak 100 Series III is also available in an eight-seat Executive Edition variant that comes with club-style seating, air conditioning with cockpit and cabin zone controls, increased oxygen capacity, and an option for premium exterior paint. The plane comes equipped with a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-34 engine and has a 2,096-kilometre (1,132-nautical-mile) flight range and a maximum speed of 183 ktas. The turboprop has a 1,601-kilogram (3,530-pound) useful load, and Daher has increased its landing weight to 3,290 kg (7,255 lbs).

Kodiak Series III upgrades include the first integration of the Garmin GWX 75 Doppler-ready color weather radar system. The plane also comes standard with a fully integrated G1000 NXi flight deck, as well as GFC700 autopilot, an angle-of-attack (AOA) indicator, SurfaceWatch, ChartView, and Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology. Additionally, the Series III’s standard 73.7-centimetre (29-inch) tires are the largest available for this aircraft size, Daher says.

All Kodiak 100 Series III purchases come with Daher’s all-inclusive, four-year Kodiak Care maintenance program, which covers scheduled maintenance up to the fourth annual inspection or 1,000 hours of total flight time, whichever comes first.

“With these latest upgrades and quality improvements, the most modern, rugged, and reliable aircraft in its class is now even better with the Kodiak 100 Series III,” says Nicolas Chabbert, Kodiak Aircraft CEO and Daher Aircraft Division senior vice president. “This latest version underscores Daher’s commitment to continual improvement for its airplane family, and further aligns the Kodiak’s attributes with those of our TBM very fast turboprop aircraft.”
