Cessna 206 - American six-light single-engine multi-purpose aircraft, first introduced in 1964 year and produced intermittently present.

The construction of small-Cessna 206 quite reminiscent of the design of the aircraft 182-th model, however, with a number of significant changes and additions, which led to the isolation of the current model in a separate aircraft. Unlike Cessna 182 Skylane, Light-engine aircraft Cessna 206 had a lengthened fuselage, which allowed to place on board the increasing number of passengers, as well as a number of new technical parameters. As the power plant, on airplanes Cessna 206 used piston engine Continental IO-520-A, which provides aircraft power 285 hp, which allows to overcome the distance to 1352 kilometers, with a maximum takeoff weight of 1497 kilos for models with conventional gear and a maximum take-off weight in kilograms 1588, in equipping aircraft float chassis.

Aircraft Cessna 206 has proven himself at work on areas not having a normal runway, which is why its operation can be conducted in remote areas.

In October, the 1964 of the year, a little more than 14 months after the appearance of the basic production model, American aircraft engineers presented a modified Cessna U206 Super Skywagon model, which has a number of additional functions and options, such as the special arrangement of passenger seats, a separate pilot door, etc. . The Cessna U206 Super Skywagon aircraft did not undergo special technical changes, with the exception of the reinforced fuselage of the aircraft, as a result, the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft increased to 1633 kilograms when taking off from the ground, and in addition, the aircraft could additionally be equipped with a ski landing gear, which made it possible operate the Cessna U206 Super Skywagon in mountainous areas or in the winter season.

In 1965, the conveyor of the American aircraft company went model Cessna P206A Super Skylane, which received a number of changes in the cabin of the aircraft, making the transport of passengers more convenient. The model was made for five years, until the middle of 1970 years.

Cessna U206 cabin

Model Cessna P206B Super Skylane, 1966 appeared in the year, is a technically modified the previous model, an improved aerodynamic shape.

Between 1965 of 1966 year, aircraft manufacturer introduced four turbocharged model - Cessna TU206A, Cessna TU206B, Cessna TP206A and Cessna TP206B differing cabin completing with, without changing the technical performance in terms of power of an aircraft engine, but with the replacement of most of the power plant on the Continental TSIO -520-C. Modifications of the Cessna TU206A and Cessna TU206B were general-purpose airplanes designed for both passenger and small cargo transport, while the Cessna TP206A and Cessna TP206B versions were used exclusively for passenger traffic.

In 1966 year, American aircraft, it was decided to install a new aircraft engine plane Continental IO-520-F, which provides aircraft power 300 hp, bringing the model appeared Cessna U206B. Nevertheless, the new power plant was rather problematic in terms of maintenance, in view of which descended from the conveyor only about hundreds of aircraft modifications.

The Cessna P206C, introduced in July 1967, received new avionics and a modified aircraft cabin. In addition, in view of the unsuccessful experience of using the 300 horsepower engine, it was decided to complete the aircraft with a Continental IO-520-A powerplant with the horsepower 285 horsepower used in the original production base model.

Modification of a turbocharged Cessna TP206C, unlike the previous turbo models get an extended fuel tanks, which allowed travel long distances. In addition, the model has received new avionics, new seats and a steering wheel. New improvement, except for technical changes, and also received such as the turbo model Cessna TP206D and Cessna TP206E, issued in 1968 and 1969 respectively.

Modifications Cessna P206D and Cessna P206E got more rigid structure of the fuselage, extended side windows, as well as modern means of communication. Technical changes, these models have not undergone.

Engine Cessna 206

Small-engine aircraft Cessna U206C, presented in 1967 year, got a new piston engine Continental IO-520-F capacity 300 hp, and a number of changes in the media avionics, however, as before, the current engine was very unclaimed, and therefore, production of aircraft of this modification was completed within two years. Improved version of Cessna U206D, with the same flight performance is also not interested in customers as the aircraft maintenance has become very expensive.

Cessna Aircraft TU206S, Cessna TU206D, Cessna TU206E and Cessna TU206F, produced in the period of 1967 1986 year received various optional changes are more related to changes in the cabin. These models are equipped with piston engines Continental TSIO-520-C with turbine units and a capacity of 285 hp, which in turn allows you to quickly accelerate to full speed you set.

Model Cessna U206E, released in 1971 year, received a new, more advanced wing profile and reinforced fuselage, which increased flight safety. Modifications similar to it Cessna U206F and Cessna U206G differed mainly in changes in the cabin and new means of avionics.

In the 1976 year, the latest version of the first production cycle of this lineup was introduced - a modification of the Cessna TU206G, with a new Continental TSIO-520-M piston engine, capable of developing power in the 310 hp. Thanks to a number of technical modifications, the plane could fly up in any surface, whether it be the ground, water or snow (ice) with the maximum mass in 1633 kg.

After a twelve-year break, the American aircraft manufacturer resumed production of the Cessna 206 aircraft, with the result that in the 1998 year, the Cessna 206H model was introduced, possessing a new engine with increased Lycoming IO-540-AC1A5 (300 hp), which was a form of the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the shape of the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, the form, and the shape of the form, the form, the form, the form, and the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the form, and the shape of the form into the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the shape of the form, the form, and the form in more advanced flight performance. The maximum flight speed of the Cessna 206H aircraft was 280 km / h, and the flight range, thanks to the new spacious fuel tanks, was increased to 1352 km.

Less than a year later, in 1998 year, Cessna Aircraft Company introduced the turbocharged model Cessna T206H, having an engine Lycoming TIO-540-AJ1A capacity 310 hp

Production models of Cessna 206H Cessna T206H and continues to this day.
