Cessna Caravan

    2010 marked the 25th production year of the Caravan, Cessna’s rugged propeller-driven workhorse, which can be equipped with pontoons for amphibious takeoff and landing. The Caravan’s single 675 hp Pratt & Whitney turbine engine has proven as dependable as its durable design—both elements that make this plane a fit for a variety of applications. While the models in the Caravan family have demonstrated adroitness as medevacs and cargo transporters, these versatile 10-seaters also offer ample luggage storage and comfort for lake-hopping owner-operators.
