The Quest Kodiak first began production in 2007 and is still in production at present. So far there have been over 80 units built of this fixed tricycle gear plane. It is a high wing aircraft and one that is mostly used in humanitarian and missionary service areas such as by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Another similar single engine aircraft is our Diamond DA40
. In 2009 an executive-styled interior design with club seating was given to some Quest Kodiak aircraft, labeled the Summit Package. Because of the intended purpose of the Kodiak planes, when cargo needs to be loaded, the passenger seats can simply be taken out as they are track mounted. There's also a large door for cargo loading in the aft fuselage, including automatic steps. The two variants of the Quest Kodiak are the basic 100 model, developed in 2007, and the Air Claw which is a variant featuring several surveillance related modifications. The maximum take off weight of the aircraft is 7255lb and the empty weight is 3770lb. The engine is a 750hp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-34 turboprop. The propellers are four blade reversible with full feathering, with a 96 inch diameter. See our impressive inventory of Quest Kodiak aircraft for sale below.
