A full-scale cabin mockup of Textron Aviation’s newest airplane, the Cessna SkyCourier utility turboprop twin, is making its debut this week at EAA AirVenture, which opened today. It is among an array of airplanes, as well as a Cessna Denali cabin and cockpit mockup, that the Wichita airframer has brought to the annual airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
SkyCourier is Cessna’s latest offering that can be configured for cargo or passenger operations. FedEx is the launch customer for the high-wing airplane that was announced in November 2017, having placed a firm order for 50 SkyCouriers in a cargo format and options for 50 more.
Additionally, Textron’s full Beechcraft and Cessna piston and turboprop product range are being represented at AirVenture, as well as the Citation M2 and CJ3+. The piston aircraft on display feature the new factory standard equipment as part of Garmin’s G1000 NXi next-generation integrated flight deck.
