Why not try Hook Field, Middletown OH (between Cincinnati & Dayton)?

Google "The DC-3Network-Training" These folks just might know who rents DC-3/Dak time in Europe. Regards

P.S. You may also want to google "Dutch Dakota Association" as their DC-3 can be idle for periods during autumn and winter.

dakota availablity


I see you are looking for a DC3 in Europe.

I own N473DC, a 1943 C47A, which I use between April and November.

She is currently hangered at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, but if you let me know what you`re after, I`ll see if I can help.

You`ll find out more on the aircraft if you Google N473DC.

Best, Paddy.
