Popular Caravan Interior Package Includes Leather, Custom
Yingling Aviation marked a significant milestone Monday with the
delivery of the 100th Cessna Model 208 Caravan fitted with an Oasis
interior. The single-engine turboprop was delivered to Wichita
businessman Arthur Alvis, president of Commtech Communications
Technologies, a manufacturer of specialty computer products.
"From the outset of this program, we anticipated strong response
from Caravan operators," said Lynn Nichols, president of Yingling
Aviation, "but we had no idea that we would reach the 100th unit in
less than 5 years. It's extremely gratifying to work with Cessna
and to provide a multipurpose and comfortable cabin environment for
customers like Arthur Alvis. Commtech is an excellent example of
the type of operator for which the Oasis Caravan is perfectly
suited. They regularly transport teams of engineers to remote sites
and have a need for a multi-function cabin that can accommodate
in-flight meetings among engineers, working on computers and
staying linked to their offices on the ground. The Oasis Caravan is
an ideal aircraft for them," he added.
"We did a thorough and exhaustive comparison of the various
aircraft we thought might meet our needs," Alvis noted, "and the
Caravan with the Oasis interior was the clear, hands-down winner.
As a Wichita-based company, we take local pride in both Cessna and
Yingling and are extremely pleased to do business with both of
On hand for the delivery of theCaravan were Yingling President
Lynn Nichols, Cessna Chairman, President and CEO Jack J. Pelton,
Cessna's Vice President of Worldwide Propeller Aircraft Sales, John
Doman and Yingling's Manager of Oasis Interiors, Angie Jackson.
Cessna announced the Oasis interior at the 2003 NBAA convention.
Available with seating for up to 10 people, the Oasis package
offers executive-grade accomodations for the Caravan. It can be
installed on new-build Caravans during production by Yingling
through an STC.
