The Grand Caravan - Multi Mission Capability From A True Workhorse
The Cessna Grand Caravan is a single-engine high wing turboprop aircraft with exceptional range, payload capacity, cabin size, speed and runway performance which make it ideally suited for passenger transportation, cargo hauling, aerial photography and surveillance, and medical evacuation missions. The Grand Caravan has an impressive maximum range of 907 nautical miles and exceptional runway performance.
The Grand Caravan's large cabin, air stair and wide cargo door greatly facilitate passenger, cargo, or patient loading. The aircraft’s rough field landing capability makes it ideal for remote strips, providing access to many locations where other aircraft cannot land.
Cessna aircraft are recognized worldwide for their quality of construction and workmanship. The Grand Caravan has been designed with reliability and safety in mind. The aircraft’s electrical system, hydraulic systems and avionics systems have multiple backups. Cessna has excellent parts availability and delivery times and has the most extensive service station network of any aircraft manufacturer. No other aircraft delivers more payload capability for less cost than the Grand Caravan. Its estimated direct operating costs during the first five years of operation are only US$362 per hour or US$2.13 per mile. So no matter what your mission is, the Grand Caravan can do it for less.
