Of particular interest in Rossiter’s book is the section on the jet Otter, featuring an experimental in-fuselage jet .

Of particular interest in Rossiter’s book is the section on the jet Otter, featuring an experimental in-fuselage jet engine whose thrust was vented through nozzles sticking out of each side of the aircraft that could be aimed to assist lift for steeper, slower landing approaches or to augment takeoff thrust of the regular engine. Then, to top off its success with the Otter, de Havilland came up with an upscale model called the Twin Otter that had two 600-shp turboprop engines in place of the previous single 600-hp radial engine.

The DHC-6 Twin Otter is a Canadian 19-passenger STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) utility aircraft developed .

The DHC-6 Twin Otter is a Canadian 19-passenger STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) utility aircraft developed by de Havilland Canada and currently produced by Viking Air. The aircraft's fixed tricycle undercarriage, STOL abilities and high rate of climb have made it a successful cargo, regional passenger airliner and MEDEVAC aircraft. In addition, the Twin Otter has been popular with commercial skydiving operations, and it is used by the United States Army Parachute Team.

Following the success of the Beaver aircraft, the engineers and test pilots who developed it decided to build an airplane that could do everything the Beaver could â?” with twice the capacity and payload â?” and the Otter was born. The Otter was a great airplane, but why not make it perfect with twin-engine reliability and nosewheel landing gear? There were complications, but the result, the Twin Otter, was another winner. With more than 100 photographs, Otter and Twin Otter is a must for plane buffs.
  • I wanted to read up on the history of the DHC-4 Twin Otter as I have flown on one here in the Sinai and am doing some historical research in their use with the Multinational Force and Observers.

    However, this book is not simply about Otters and Twin Otters but seemingly about every airplane in the DHC line. Only one short chapter really discussed the Twin Otter in the role I am interested in (although there is an interesting angle on the Otter I was not aware of and will now conduct additional research).

    The book goes into excruciating details about test pilots and engineers involved in the development of the Otter, the Beaver, the Caribou, etc. and not so much about the aircraft and which airlines and companies operate them.

    On the plus side, the book has a wealth of photos and the author clearly knows is subject. On the downside, however, the author would clearly rather be flying an Otter than writing about one.

  • Book showed up as predicted, was in good quality, well packed. Good job, thanks!

  • Recommend to any Army Aviation Veteran or any Bush Pilot.

  • I first flew in a DeHaviland DHC-6 Twin Otter in East Africa in 1970, and have been an avid fan of it ever since. This book reviews the history of the Twin Otter, and it's younger sibling, the Otter, with an exciting presentation and polished style that makes it hard to put down. Sean Rossiter did his homework when he compiled the information for "Otter & Twin Otter (The Universal Airplanes)". Any aircraft enthusiast who reads this book will immediately encounter the heartfelt adoration and respect of these awesome STOL (short take-off/landing) classics that Rossiter delivers to the reader. Go the the Pacific Northwest, and you'll still see these planes everywhere, heading out to the fishing camps and private lodges that dot the islands of Washington State and British Columbia. Rossiter captures the unique history of these workhorses with a keen and accurate style. Fellow bush plane enthusiasts, enjoy!

  • I am an aviation artist and aircraft enthusiast and I found this book to be not only helpful in a project that I had recently worked but also found it very informative and exciting reading.
