A Bit of 206 History

The Cessna 205, 206, and 207, known primarily as the Stationair, are single-engine, fixed landing gear, used not only for personal use but also for commercial air service.

In 1963 Cessna introduced the 205. This aircraft was basically a fixed gear version of the 1963 C210 and was certified on the 210 type certificate as the 210-5. Cessna continued production of the 205 essentially unchanged for 1964 as the model 205A. That same year the 206 was created by taking the 205 airframe and beefing it up with additional structure and larger rivets.

In 1969 the 207 was introduced. Cessna took the U206 cabin selection, wings, lift struts, and basic empennage and added a 18 inch section forward of the firewall and a 30 inch section aft of the rear door post which increased cabin size to 155.5 cubic feet. This allowed a seventh passenger seat and additional baggage area.

The first section of the course you’ll take a look at all the upgrades and modifications by model year. You’ll have a better understanding as to why CPA began offering these very comprehensive Systems & Procedures Courses.

You’ll leave this course knowing more about your Stationair than you ever thought possible.
