To me, it looks like a cross between a Shorts and an ATR

Winnah.

Anyone else want to see it on floats or skis?

Will the floats will be mounted close together on the fuselage,meaning you'll need largish wing tip floats, adding drag, or will they be on substantial pylons and bracing which would also add a lot of drag ? I wonder if either float configuration will make it a fuel hog.

Or a twin engined Trislander.

More like a Twin Otter

Agree. Looks like faster than the venerable Twotter. What a legacy to follow!

Looks like a work horse. Bravo

Yes, a work horse: form follows function, can carry three LD3 containers. FedEx is the launch customer, ordered 50, optioned 50 more. Guess they need something bigger than their Cessna Caravans.

I know the freight dogs are gonna be mildly impressed. Looks like a winner.

I hope it handles cold weather better than an ATR.

We'll stay with the four DHC-6's that we have - 1966, 1976, 1987 & 2015

"TwOtter 2020"

My two cents.

Isn’t this a degradation in technology from jet engines back to propellers? I’m not trying to be argumentative; I truly don’t understand.

Well at least it's a high wing with wing struts

When was the last time Cessna built a twin prop?

Looks more like GAP NOMAD or Dornier DO 228, could be a useful aircraft for the African and Asian market.

I wonder how much drag those struts add.

It doesn't even look like a Cessna. What were they thinking?

They might have been thinking "Hey there's a design that works, lets copy it"..... maybe next up a double-deck Cessna "380" with four fans.

I guess the patent on the 'Otter' expired.

The Twin Otter is still being manufactured, now by Viking Air.
