927 - DHC-6-400 C-GVOT Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC


  • Spokane, WA (KGEG/GEG) - Victoria, BC (CYYJ/YYJ)

C-GVOT departed the paint shop last evening and arrived in Victoria as can be seen in the second photo below. This will become the fourth Series 400 for Air Seychelles, and carries the name "Isle of Denis" - like the other three it is expected that the Seychelles registration will be some derivation of the aircraft's name. Upon delivery to Air Seychelles it will likely allow for the release of another DHC-6-300 to leave the fleet.

C-GVOT is seen below prior to departure to the paint shop on 19-Jul-2015.
