National Airways Corporation (NAC), has been reappointed as the Quest Aircraft authorized dealer for Kodiak in Southern and East Africa. This follows a period when a sub-agent had been promoting the aircraft, this has now ended, and NAC has been appointed as a full agent.
The Kodiak 100 is a specialised, high performance STOL utility load hauler, developed for mission field work, which has proven its versatility over the past decade of operations in demanding locations such as the Okavango Delta and short rough field hot and high airstrips. The Kodiak is built in Sandpoint Idaho, USA and there are now over 250 aircraft operating in over 55 countries worldwide. In May 2018 the Series II was launched with improved optional single-point re-fuelling and a new cockpit with a faster Garmin G1000 NXi and HSI map, plus angle of attack indicator and cabin upgrades.
Martin Banner, CEO of NAC commented “We are convinced of the Kodiak’s qualities and the timing of the appointment could not have been better as we have recently seen the launch of the new Kodiak 100 Series II aircraft. We look forward to working closely with Quest to establish its rightful place in the market.”
Paul Branham, Vice President of Sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Quest Aircraft, added, “We’re pleased to announce our partnership with NAC, and have complete confidence in their ability to represent and support the Kodiak. It’s a rugged aircraft, reliable, simple to maintain and boasts low operating economics. We see fantastic potential for it.”
NAC is based at Lanseria International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa.
