Daher Kodiak 100 N282KQ at NZAA Yesterday 24-9-2023

Peter Dorbeck was at Auckland International yesterday and photo'd the newly delivered Daher Kodiak 100 N282KQ (c/n 100-282).  This aircraft is for Glenorchy Air and it is painted in their colours:

The Kodiak 100 is a direct competitor for the Cessna Grand Caravan that performs a little better because of its more powerful P&W PT 6-34 turboprop engine, but it only seats 10 as against the Grand Caravan's 14 seats.  This aircraft will be the first of its type to be registered in New Zealand although a float equipped Kodiak 100 (N181KQ) has operated here.

Thanks for the photo Peter.
