The Daher Kodiak is a high-wing, single-engine, short takeoff and landing (STOL) utility aircraft originally designed by the American firm Quest Aircraft. It was acquired in 2019 by Daher, an aircraft manufacturer and an industry and service equipment supplier present in 13 countries, which now produces and continues to develop it. The Kodiak was initially created to serve the needs of humanitarian aid initiatives, which often require operations in austere settings with unimproved airfields. Customer uses of the airplane have included skydiving, VIP, flightseeing, short-haul commuter, and cargo. Crewed by one, the aluminum-skinned Kodiak can carry up to nine passengers or 3,500 pounds of cargo.

The Kodiak features a 45-foot main wing that is optimized for STOL performance and is fitted with a fixed tricycle landing gear that keeps the airplane high off the ground for dirt and grass strips. The aircraft is powered by a 750-horsepower Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-34 turboprop driving a four-blade constant-speed propeller that, combined with the main wing design, provides exceptional STOL performance. An all-glass Garmin cockpit rounds out the Kodiak’s features.

The Kodiak can takeoff with just 934 feet of ground roll, land in 765 feet, and has a climb rate of 1,340 feet per minute. Its top speed is 182 knots, it cruises at 174 knots, and has a full-flaps stall speed of 47 knots. It has a maximum range of 1,132 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 25,000 feet above sea level.

The Kodiak is both forgiving and sporty to fly. Its powerful engine and modern design give pilots a wide range of where and how to operate it. Aviators can drop in on a dirt airstrip hacked into the side of a mountain, or, with floats, lift off of a glass-smooth lake and explore uninhabited forests from just above tree-top level.
