Calgary’s Regent Aircraft Services Acquires Air Panama Twin Otter Fleet
Continuing to expand their acquisition, overhaul and re-marketing strategy, another three legacy Twin Otter Series 300’s have joined Regent Aircraft Services in Calgary. The aircraft have been acquired from Air Panama, who have operated them on internal services within Panama since 2005.
The three aircraft were originally manufactured in 1973, 1974 and 1977.
