Cessna recently delivered its 1,000th 208B Grand Caravan, bringing the total Caravan series deliveries to 1,300 since the turboprop single entered service in 1985. The 1,000th airplane went to retailer Supap Puranitee and will be based in Thailand, where it will be used primarily for personal transportation. About 30 percent of all Caravans are used principally for cargo operations and 70 percent for carrying passengers and/or cargo, according to Cessna.
