1. Introduction

On 1965, De Havilland Canada Twin otter, the high winged, un-pressurized twin turbine engine powered aircraft with fixed tricycle landing gear (Viking Air, n.d.) first took the air and become popular with its designed as rugged Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities. As well as the capability of the Twin otter to carry both passenger and cargo into remote and extreme condition utilizing ski and floats based operations. It has been more than 20 years, 22 years to be exact, since the last production of the iconic De Havilland Canada Twin Otter halted production since 1988 (Viking Air, n.d.).

Since the halt of the production of the Twin Otter in 1988 (Viking Air, n.d), after some extensive market analysis and project management by the people from Viking Air Limited, the mass production will then come back to support the demand for 19 seat commuter aircraft. With this project, there is no other aircraft in the world that has been re-introduced after its original production ceased (Olsen, 2009). With the project being headed by Viking Air’s president and CEO, Dave Curtis, the project was launched in 2007 with the first delivery in 2010 (Slutsken, 2014).

Throughout the life cycle of the project, from the conceptualization to termination, various theories, principles and methodologies was practiced for the success of the project. In this report, I will examine on how did the acquisition of Viking Air Ltd. successfully developed and restart the production of the Twin otter. This includes an assessment of major risks faced through the project development and recommended mitigation strategies by using TOWS matrix. A suggested Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) with details to level 2 and one being detailed to level 3. Lastly, a comparison of two similar projects that involves re introducing an old design with updates, mentioning the similarities and differences from project management perspective.
