Flying the Daher Kodiak 900 Turboprop

Daher’s Kodiak 900, the new version of its Kodiak single-engine utility turboprop, adds more high-end features along with a fuselage that is 3.9 feet longer and aerodynamic improvements that give it up to 36 knots more speed at cruise.

The original model 100 will continue in production and remains the choice for those who want floats for water-landing capability. The 900 carves out a new market niche with a higher payload, faster cruise speed, and optional double club seating for eight passengers.

AIN Editor-in-Chief Matt Thurber put the second 900 ever built through its paces during a flight with Mark Brown, Daher Kodiak chief demo pilot and marketing director.
