Caravan Reaches 25 Million Flight Hours

Textron Announces Caravan Fleet Reaches 25 Million Flight Hours

Textron Aviation has announced a significant milestone for its Cessna Caravan turboprop family, which has now surpassed 25 million flight hours. This achievement cements the Caravan's status as the most produced single-engine utility turboprop in history. The Cessna Caravan and Cessna Grand Caravan EX, both part of this distinguished family, are designed and manufactured by Textron Aviation Inc., a subsidiary of Textron Inc.

 


Lannie O’Bannion, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Flight Operations at Textron Aviation, expressed pride in this accomplishment, highlighting the Caravan's versatility and reliability. "This accomplishment is a testament to the steadfast confidence our customers have in the Caravan to fulfill their missions, deliver solutions, and improve lives around the world," said O'Bannion.

The Cessna Caravan was originally designed as a rugged utility aircraft with low operating costs, ideal for use in remote areas with challenging weather conditions, mountainous terrain, and rough landing sites. Its versatility has made it a favorite around the globe, serving a diverse range of customers including government agencies, law enforcement, militaries, air ambulance operators, freight haulers, corporations, and humanitarian organizations.

Textron Aviation remains committed to the ongoing investment in and development of the Cessna Caravan turboprop family. The company is dedicated to enhancing the Caravan's capabilities to ensure it continues to meet the evolving needs of pilots, passengers, and aviation enthusiasts worldwide. The aircraft's cockpit is equipped with Garmin’s G1000 NXi next-generation integrated flight deck, providing customers with access to the latest technology and connectivity. This milestone underscores the enduring legacy and continued relevance of the Cessna Caravan in the aviation industry.
