Daher expands acquires Quest Aircraft Company
Family-owned French aircraft manufacturer, Daher recently acquired the US-based Quest Aircraft Company, renaming it Kodiak Aircraft.
Daher is recognised in aviation circles as the producer of the fastest turboprop aircraft in its class, and the acquisition of Kodiak Aircraft will enable the 156-year-old company to widen its product range and strengthen its position in the turboprop segment.
Adding to its portfolio of airplanes that includes the fast TBM range, Daher will also be supplying the Kodiak 100, which is an incredibly flexible all-terrain aircraft that has gained popularity amongst air-taxi and leisure operators, as well as businesses and humanitarian organisations the world over.
Daher will continue to manufacture all TBM models at its factory in France, while Kodiak Aircraft will retain its factory in Sandpoint, Idaho. Daher aims to create synergies between the two brands and is planning on introducing some of the technology and functionality that has made TBM so successful to the Kodiak range.
As Africa’s leading general aviation company, NAC welcomes the Daher’s acquisition of Kodiak and looks forward to the innovations and value-added services that this pairing will lead to in the future.
