The NBA player recently posted some snaps on his Instagram Stories that revealed his mode of transportation – a customized DHC-6-300 Twin Otter by Four Seasons. This aircraft offers a range of services including airport transfers, private charters, island-hopping excursions, and seaplane surfaris for guests staying at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. The DHC-6 Twin Otter is a Canadian STOL aircraft that was produced from 1965 to 1998 and is currently marketed as the Viking Air DHC-6 Twin Otter. Viking Air acquired the type certificate and resumed production in 2008.

The DH-6-300 is a model that boasts a length of 51 ft 9 in (15.77 m) and a height of 19 ft 6 in (5.94 m). It can comfortably accommodate up to twenty passengers as well as one or two cockpit crew members. The aircraft is equipped with two Pratt Whitney PT6A-27 engines that can propel it to reach a maximum cruise speed of 175 knots (201 mph/ 324 kph). Its maximum range is approximately 580 nautical miles (667 mi/ 1074 km). Following a disappointing season with the Lakers, the four-time champion expressed his disappointment through a tweet last week. He has been in the league for more than 18 years and missing the playoffs for the fourth time was a major blow. He wrote, “I can’t afford to miss the post-season again in my career! It’s painful. Okay, time to get back to watching the games.” However, he also found solace in spending quality time with his loved ones.
