SENAN Panama orders new rescue plane

The government of Panama has ordered a second Series 400 Twin Otter for use by its Servicio Nacional Aeronaval (SENAN) Air Group based in Cocoli. Canadian aircraft manufacturer Viking Air is scheduled to deliver the plane this December. The machine will be utilised to support the agency’s humanitarian aid missions throughout the country.

The fixed-wing aircraft will be equipped with standard wheel gear for its primary role as troop and cargo transport, and will also be configured for medical evacuation to support emergencies as needed.

SENAN took delivery of its first Series 400 in December 2016, and has deployed the aircraft in a variety of roles.
