Aurigny is one of the latest operators of the Do 228, having introduced two examples to replace its veteran Trislanders.
The Norwegian company Lufttransport was the launch customer for the Do 228NG in Europe. It uses its aircraft for passenger and cargo transport, and is pictured here flying off Svalbard in the Arctic Circle.
Rough field operations, for example here in Venezuela, are a key aspect of the Do 228. It can take off in 2,600ft and land in 2,500ft.
The Netherlands Coastguard is one of several parapublic operators that use Do 228s.
Each pilot has two Universal HD liquid crystal display screens, with multiple display settings, and there is an electronic standby instrument system between the two inboard screens.
