This beautiful Cessna Aircraft Company T206H is on it’s way to Kenya for Mt. Elgon Orchards!
Africair, Inc. very proud to deliver this aircraft to a great Kenyan company. Mt. Elgon Orchards is one of the premier flower farms in Kenya. With over 1,300 workers, Mt. Elgon Orchards grows 80 million roses annually, and every day they ship 50,000 roses to Europe and Russia!
Over the past decade, Mt. Elgon Orchards had put 40% of their profits back into the the community where they have constructed vocational schools and one of the largest HIV testing and treatment facilities in Kenya.
Equipped with a Aerocet Cargo Pod for additional volume, and Flint Aero, Inc Tip Tanks, this T206H is an ideal bush plane. Installed by Propel Aviation Sales & Services LLC , the Flint Tip tanks add 15 gallons of extra fuel per side, and increase the overall length of the wingspan by 3 ft. The longer wing allows the aircraft to have a lower stall speed. Also, the addition of the tip tanks allows the total gross weight of the aircraft to increase by 200 pounds.
