CTV News Footage: Twin Otter Simulator Launch

Pilots are flocking to the City of Calgary to get experience flying one of the world’s most versatile planes, but they’re doing it without actually sitting in one.

The Twin Otter, built here in Calgary, is able to fly in a number of various conditions all over the world, making it the perfect plane for many different situations.

Pilots are lining up to take courses in the 19-passenger aircraft, but they’re actually going to be logging all their flight time in a sophisticated flight simulator, designed specifically for the Twin Otter.
