Worlds First Dash-8 300 With Oversized Cargo Doors Begins Service With Air Inuit
After 3 years of design and testing the specially modified Dash8-300 has received its Supplemental Type Certification from Transport Canada earlier in February.
This new oversized cargo door measuring 274 cm x 173cm will make it easier to transport food and other goods on pallets with loading and unloading time reduced.
The aircraft has since joined Air Inuit’s fleet servicing 14 coastal villages of Nunavik, part of the Nord-du-Québec region.
With a lack of road access, the airline is essential to deliver food products and special materials to the residents.
