I picked up the twin otter yesterday and was doing some bush flying. I randomly picked a mountain strip in Idaho (U81*, and a reasonably close by strip to land at (C53). Loaded up the twotter to 50% fuel and 100% cargo, and off I went. Then it got interesting, interesting enough I’ve spent a couple of hours seeing what all aircraft I can get into C53 with a ton of cargo and 50% fuel.
So far I’ve managed to get the PC-6 and the twin otter in. My attempts with the Islander have failed, but I’ve gotten close. It’s a pretty quick trip maybe 30 mins depending on how aggressive you want to be with the throttle. Plenty of cloud rocks, box canyons etc.
Nice, you greased the islander in on that one. If I can avoid making a left when I need to make a right on the approach down the river (into a box canyon, that the islander isn’t making it out of) I think I can make that work.
Very nice on the King Air, I wouldn’t have expected that one to make it.
