Daher Unveils Larger, Faster Kodiak

The company developed the $3.487 million utility turboprop in secret.

Daher has introduced the Kodiak 900 as the latest entry in its stable of turboprop singles. The $3.487 million Kodiak 900, which recently received FAA certification, is a variant of the company’s Kodiak 100 utility turboprop, with a 3.9-foot fuselage stretch and 1,129-nautical-mile range. Deliveries are planned to start in January, according to Daher. The 100 Series III will remain in production.

“The Kodiak 900 underscores parent company Daher’s firm commitment to the constant improvement of its aircraft product line,” said Daher CEO Didier Kayat. “It follows our launch of the latest TBM family member—the TBM 960—just three months ago.”

The airplane has been in secret development since 2016, and three test aircraft are already built. The prototype has been flying since Feb. 28, 2020, and the fleet has accumulated more than 600 hours of flight testing and 800 hours of ground runtime.
