IKHANA Launches Twin Otter X2 Program
IKHANA launched its Twin Otter X2 program, to authorize the “Re-Life” of time-expired DHC-6 airplanes to new “Zero Time” structural life limits of 66,000 flight hours or 132,000 flight cycles.

The Murrieta, Calif.-based aircraft services company said the program uses its RWMI DHC-6Re-Life Wing Box and Re-Life Fuselage Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) as the FAA approved engineering design basis. IKHANA installs the new systems along with the customer’s choice of avionics, engines and propellers.
“The key to the IKHANA Twin Otter X2 is the combination of our STC’d RWMI DHC-6 Re-Life Fuselage with our RWMI Re-Life Wing Box to create value from an operator’s unusable timed-out asset,” said John Zublin, CEO of IKHANA. “We are essentially providing the Twin Otter with a new 'birth certificate' and a new, full useful life. IKHANA is currently working on three deliveries for 2013.”
