Quest Aircraft Company from Sandpoint, Idaho, and RAS are introducing the Quest KODIAK Series II. This versatile turboprop aircraft provides outstanding STOL performance, making it ideal for any mission. Needing less than 300 meters runway, even on unpaved terrain, the new KODIAK can fly up to nine passengers, mastering difficult missions with safety and reliability.

The KODIAK Series II is remarkably versatile. It is available as a comfortable aircraft for business trips, or as an adventure carrier to remote locations, or even as a robust and spacious transport aircraft. The KODIAK is also popular for parachutists, air ambulance transports, reconnaissance flights, or amphibious use on floats. The KODIAK Series II meets the highest demands for multi-mission flexibility and comfort, and now offers innovative new paint finishes.

In Friedrichshafen, AERO visitors will be impressed by the latest cockpit equipment, such as the Garmin G1000 NXi-Flight Deck or the ESI-500 from L3. Quest and the RAS team will warmly welcome visitors, informing them about all the features and performance data of this unusual aircraft.
