The Cessna Denali isn’t the only new Cessna model on display at AirVenture. Cessna has also taken the opportunity to unveil the Cessna Turbo Stationair HD to the crowds at OshKosh. The new aircraft model is an enhanced version of the Cessna Turbo Stationair T206H single-engine piston aircraft. The Stationair Turbo HD features a gross weight increase of 189 pounds, which means that in its standard configuration with six seats, the aircraft has a maximum useful load of 1,470 pounds. And when in a utility configuration, the useful load increases to 1,623 pounds.

Doug May, the Vice President of Piston Aircraft, had this to say about the new model, “Textron Aviation is committed to building and delivering aircraft that meet our customers’ needs and the Turbo Stationair HD is the latest example of our continued investment in the piston product line. Already considered the heavy-hauler in its class, operators using the aircraft for hauling families, freight, special mission equipment or simply more fuel can now all benefit from increased payload and range.”
