INTRODUCTION
This manual contains ground support information with respect to servicing, maintenance and repair of the
DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft. Data is provided to assist in planning suitable ground handling areas and hangar
facilities, and replenishment requirements. Lists of special tools and equipment for servicing, maintenance and
repair are also included.
The PSM1-6-2T, Part 1 only, is included in the Pilot Operating Handbook (PSM1-63-POH & PSM1-64-POH) for
convenience and is meant for reference only.
For the Series 400, CAP Floats are not approved.
The manual is divided into three Parts as follows:
PART 1 AIRCRAFT BASIC DATA
This Part is divided into two sections:
SECTION 1 AIRCRAFT DIMENSIONS. Giving dimensional data for planning suitable ground handling
areas and hangar facilities.
SECTION 2 REPLENISHMENT REQUIREMENTS. Giving details of ground equipment required for routine
servicing replenishment. Full details of servicing are contained in the aircraft maintenance manuals (PSM
1-6-2, PSM 1-63-2, PSM 1-63S-2 and PSM 1-64-2).
PART 2 GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT
This Part is divided into ATA-100 Chapters and lists items of equipment required for performing maintenance
tasks on the airframe, power plant and ancillary equipment.
PART 3 REPAIR EQUIPMENT
Part 3 lists tools required for general repairs to the aircraft. Details of structural repairs are contained in
the aircraft structural repair manual (PSM1-6-3).
APPENDIX 1 MECHANIC'S TOOL KIT
Appendix 1 lists the tools recommended for inclusion in a mechanic's tool kit.

Dimensions and Areas General


A. Landplane and Skiplane
The overall dimensions of the landplane are shown in Figure 1. Although the landplane only is depicted, the
dimensions are applicable to the skiplane with the exception of the following additional items:
Ski Board Areas
Wheel-ski, nose

14.3 sq ft

Wheel-ski, main (each)

20.5 sq ft

Spring-ski, nose

12.3 sq ft

Spring-ski, main (each)

17.5 sq ft

B. Floatplane
The overall dimensions are shown in Figure 2 with the heights shown relative to the waterline with the aircraft
at gross weight. Additional dimensions pertinent to docking and beaching are as follows:
Max. oat draft (A/C at 12,500 lb)

2 ft 1 in.

Overhang outboard of oat

24 ft 0 in.

Clearance above waterline of wing and stabilizer auxiliary ns

8 ft 4 in.

Max. height above ground with aircraft on beaching gear

20 ft 2 in.

Min. keel clearance

1 ft 6 in.

C. Overhead Clearance
For landplane congurations, additional overhead clearance for hangars with low threshold heights may be
obtained by raising aircraft nose during entry or exit. With nose raised approximately 18 inches, vertical
stabilizer is lowered approximately 34 inches.
2. Turning Radius of Aircraft
The turning radius of the aircraft is shown in Figure 3.
