Cessna Caravan

Made for your Mission

The versatile Caravan, with the PT6A-114A turbine engine, is Cessna’s current production model flown worldwide for short-haul regional airline and utility work, including amphibious missions. The aircraft typically seats 9 passengers but can accommodate up to 14. Understanding that many missions would benefit from an increase in power, Blackhawk Modifications is now offering its XP42A upgrade package, featuring the PT6A-42A engine, to the Caravan operating community. The same upgrade was previously certified for the Grand Caravan, and is already helping dozens of hard-working 208B operators access shorter runways, increase safety margins and carry more passengers and cargo.

“We can go higher with no noticeable increase in fuel use, and we can carry 20 passengers instead of 18 with our increased useful load and fly 22 loads a day instead of 12 because of the climb rate.”
