Quest names American Kodiak as authorised dealer
American Kodiak was established by the experienced Gregory L Brown and his colleagues Phil Jordan, Chad Collins and Herb Knight in response to the growing interest in the Quest Kodiak across several US states.

Quest Aircraft has appointed American Kodiak as the authorised dealer for the Kodiak throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. American Kodiak has offices in Denton and Forth Worth, Texas.

Quest's VP of sales for North, Central and South America John Hunt comments: “Our confidence in American Kodiak to represent the type throughout this active aviation region could not be higher. Its sales and support history demonstrates an exemplary understanding and commitment to its owners’ and operators' needs.”

American Kodiak is led by Fort Worth and Steamboat Springs, Colorado, rancher and real estate developer Gregory L Brown. He says: “The Kodiak is such a versatile product, and I firmly believe its flexibility will ensure remarkable success. We anticipate it will be well-received in multiple active industries here, ranging from agricultural, oil and construction applications, to the corporate and private use markets as well."

The 10-seat Quest Kodiak 100 Series II combines favourable STOL performance and high useful load. Powered by the Pratt & Whitney PT6 turbine engine, it is capable of landing and taking off from unpaved surfaces. The Kodiak can also take off in under 1,000 feet at its full gross takeoff weight of 7,255 lbs and climb at over 1,300 ft per minute. Originally designed to be a humanitarian workhouse, its applications include float operations, special missions, medevac and skydiving. The owner-flown segment continues to gain momentum as well, particularly in the North American marketplace.

American Kodiak was established by Brown, along with industry veterans Phil Jordan, Chad Collins and Herb Knight to take advantage of the burgeoning business aviation industry in the region and to provide the highest quality aircraft and client services.
