Banyan Air Service Appointed Florida Dealer For Quest Kodiak

Multi-Role Turboprop With STOL Capabilities

Banyan Air Service based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport has recently been appointed as a Quest Authorized Sales Center for the Kodiak. Florida is a strong market for the Kodiak for charter operators, small businesses, personal owners, skydiving operations, U.S. and international government, and humanitarian organizations.  

The Kodiak’S rugged aluminum construction combines superior short take-off and landing (STOL) performance and high useful load.  It offers proven turbine reliability with the Pratt & Whitney PT6 turbine engine, has the ability to land and take off from unimproved surfaces and is capable of working off floats without structural upgrades.  The Kodiak can take off in under 1,000 feet at full gross takeoff weight of 7,255 lbs and climb at over 1,300 feet per minute.  A 3-panel Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite including Synthetic Vision Technology is standard equipment on the Kodiak. "This is a natural complement to our existing maintenance service capability for the Kodiak, and we are proud to offer complete sales and service under one roof," said Michael O’Keeffe, Banyan’s senior vice president of aircraft sales.

The Kodiak can be outfitted with an External Cargo Compartment, air-conditioning and even a Jump package making this a versatile cargo-hauling work-horse or comfortable passenger transport. In addition, to having the Kodiak on display at the Banyan Air Service facility, a 12 stop airport tour is being planned.  

Quest Aircraft Company is the manufacturer of the Kodiak, a 10-place singe engine turboprop utility airplane, designed for STOL use and float capability.  Headquartered in Sandpoint, Idaho, the company was established in 2011 and began deliveries of the Kodiak in December 2007.
