The Original Trailblazer
The Cessna® Caravan® is known for its rugged utility and flexibility. With its powerful turboprop engine, the Caravan delivers the rare combination of high performance, low operating costs and ability to adapt to a wide variety of missions.
Cessna Citation M2
The Cessna Caravan is capable of performing life-critical missions in remote locations, flying in adverse environments and operating on unimproved airstrips. Its high-wing design allows for a stable platform to provide in-flight critical care. From basic non-critical transport to neonatal care, the Caravan can provide the right response.
Adding floats to your Cessna Caravan brings new meaning to the word versatility. Amphibious and dedicated sea plane floats open up a whole new range of possibilities and give you access to areas where an airstrip just isn’t an option.
The Cessna® Caravan® is the ideal aircraft for parachute operations with the ability to operate out of rural airports and carry up to 15 jumpers with bench style seating. The available roll up cabin door opens easily in-flight and creates an obstruction free opening for jumping. For commercial and military operations alike, the Caravan excels.
Give student pilots a new level of preparedness with the Cessna® Caravan®. With room for up to 14 passengers, training in the Caravan allows the student to experience firsthand the flight characteristics of a charter or airline aircraft. This is possible while maintaining cost effectiveness of a training aircraft with the efficient and ultra-dependable PT6A-114A turbine engine.
A pioneer among special mission aircraft, the Cessna Caravan brings ruggedness to precise operations. Mount advanced sensors and imaging systems to either single or dual camera hole installations covering a range of survey missions. You’ll be able to access more sites from unimproved runways and stay ahead of the competition with turboprop performance and single-engine efficiency.
You have the freedom to configure the Cessna® Caravan® to meet the specific demands of your surveillance mission. External mounting provisions allow for use of advanced electro optical/infrared (EO/IR) systems that transmit imaging to cabin mission computers and available cockpit repeaters. Intelligence is shared in real time via tactical radio and satellite downlink.
The Cessna® Caravan® influenced an entire category of utility turboprop aircraft. Its customizable cabin allows for optimized loading and freedom to switch between passenger and cargo transport. The Caravan was engineered for challenging missions, high payloads and short, rough runways while delivering single-engine economy and simplicity.
