Cessna Aircraft delivered the 100th Grand Caravan EX this week. The milestone aircraft was handed over at Cessna’s Wichita headquarters to Hussain Ali Rashid Almoalla for use at his aviation club in the UAE. Almoalla, who also owns a Cessna 182 Skylane and 206 Stationair, planned to personally fly the Caravan back to his home base in Abu Dhabi, a trip of more than 9,000 nm. Powered by the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-140, the EX offers a 38-percent improvement in rate of climb over the standard Grand Caravan, as well as a 10- to 12-knot boost in cruise speed.
