Daher launches enhanced Kodiak 100 Series III

First customer deliveries

Sandpoint, Idaho, USA, March 29, 2021 - The Kodiak 100 Series III version of Daher’s turboprop-powered sport and utility aircraft was unveiled today, incorporating enhancements and standard features for improved flight safety, greater cabin comfort, augmented operational capabilities from both unimproved strips and on water with floats, as well as upgraded quality and more comprehensive maintenance coverage.

Marking its official launch was this morning’s delivery of the first Kodiak 100 Series III to Rick and Adam Ross in Sandpoint, Idaho, which will be followed later in the week by a second aircraft’s handover to another owner/operator.



The first Kodiak 100 Series III aircraft was delivered to Rick and Adam Ross at Sandpoint, Idaho, with Kodiak's Chief Demo Pilot Mark Brown providing the key for this milestone airplane.

“With these latest upgrades and quality improvements, the most modern, rugged, and reliable aircraft in its class is now even better with the Kodiak 100 Series III,” said Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division, and CEO of Kodiak Aircraft. “This latest version underscores Daher’s commitment to continual improvement for its airplane family, and further aligns the Kodiak’s attributes with those of our TBM very fast turboprop aircraft.”

Chabbert added that after Daher’s 2019 acquisition of the Kodiak product line and production facilities at Sandpoint, the company has applied its resources in stepping up this all-terrain aircraft’s capabilities and reinforcing the worldwide services network.

Offered on Series III aircraft is the eight-seat Executive Edition cabin with club-type seating for passengers, air conditioning with controls for both the cockpit and cabin zones, as well as an increased oxygen capacity. Enhanced quality exterior paint is an option, provided with an extended three-year warranty.

Among the Kodiak 100 Series III’s upgrades for improved flight safety and enhanced situational awareness is the first integration of Garmin’s GWX™ 75 Doppler-capable, fully stabilized color weather radar on a Kodiak. This radar’s high-definition color palette enables more detailed contouring of storm cells, which is combined with its exceptional range and adjustable scanning profiles.

Also contributing to the Kodiak 100 Series III’s augmented flight safety is standard equipment that includes Garmin’s G1000 NXi fully integrated flight deck, the GFC700 autopilot with full envelope protection and level mode, an angle of attack (AOA) indicator, SurfaceWatch runway monitoring technology, ChartView-enabled card, and the Synthetic Vision Technology for virtual flight reference. The Kodiak’s already-excellent versatility is further improved with incorporation of the largest tire size available for this aircraft (29 inches), a higher landing weight of 7,255 lb., and a lower zero-fuel weight that allows more payload – especially on shorter missions.

All Kodiak 100 Series III aircraft are float-ready for seaplane operations, and the standard pitch latch propeller allows for easy maneuvering at the dock by enabling the propeller to stay in a fine pitch during engine shutdown – giving greater control and safety on the water. Additionally, skin gap fillet sealant is the fifth step in an industry-leading anti-corrosion process, providing protection especially in high salinity environments.



All Kodiak 100 Series III aircraft are float-ready for seaplane operations.

Completing the standard package for Kodiak 100 Series III aircraft is the best-in-class, all-inclusive four-year Kodiak Care maintenance program, which covers scheduled maintenance up to the fourth annual inspection or a total flight time of 1,000 hours – whichever comes first. Also included is Pratt & Whitney Canada’s Gold-level ESP™ Maintenance Program for the PT6A-34 turboprop engine, along with one year of CAMP Systems maintenance tracking and a year’s subscription for Garmin’s NavData electronic database.

The purchase of this latest Kodiak version comes with a reservation for Kodiak Aircraft’s factory-taught maintenance training course, with the possibility of a designated mechanic completing the course to become a factory-authorized technician.
