Meet Knut, businessman based in Amarillo, TX, and also owns a ranch in Idaho. Simply put, Knut loves aircraft! Knut has owned 42 different aircraft over the years.
Knut had pen in hand to make number 42 a King Air, but went to Oshkosh first. And there he discovered the Kodiak. After full evaluation, he made Number 42 a Kodiak.
“During the evaluation it became clear the Kodiak was a better fit for my many different missions. First, safety is very important to me and I concluded Kodiak is one of the safest aircraft available. Impossible to stall, excellent visibility, easy to fly, very rugged so that in the very unlikely event that the turboprop engine should fail, you can land anyplace. And its operating cost is much lower than any King Air.
I take many guests out to the ranch and do back country flying. Being a utility aircraft it can carry lots of people and their baggage plus gear. And after landing, you can turn it on a dime. Also I use it significantly to grow and sustain my business.”
I love the fact that the factory stays on top of the latest technology that can be incorporated, and thus the Kodiak holds its resale value well.
To me, the Kodiak is bulletproof.
American Kodiak is the factory dealer for the Kodiak in the central U.S. Our staff has almost 100 years of combined experience in business aviation. But to have an owner who has owned 42 aircraft purchase a Kodiak is monstrously more impressive than any brochure or video we can provide.
Give us a call and we’ll show you the other extensive details on why Knut selected a Kodiak for number 42.
