Today’s Top Pick is a 2001 Cessna T206H

Cessna’s 206 is one of those airplanes that everyone seems to want because it performs most tasks very well. It has six seats, making it ideal for families, and can carry lots of cargo, which you can load easily thanks to double cargo doors on the right side of the fuselage. Plenty of horsepower and a Sportsman STOL kit translate to impressive short-field performance, while sturdy fixed landing gear with Alaskan Bushwheels and heavy-duty brakes make it easier to turn that short takeoff and landing capability into success in the bush.

This T206H has 957 hours on the airframe and the Lycoming TIO-540, and 720 hours on the three-blade McCauley hot prop. The aircraft carries 92 gallons of fuel in its main wing tanks and 30 additional gallons in two wingtip tanks for extra endurance and range. Recent engine service and replacements include magnetos, spark plugs, fuel lines, air filter, exhaust gaskets, starter motor, and vacuum pumps.

Inside the cabin, all six seats come with headrests, seat belts with shoulder harnesses, intercom and oxygen outlets, air vents, and reading lights. Useful load is 1,150 pounds. Interior upholstery is original, and exterior paint in a factory scheme was applied in 2016.

Pilots who thrive on versatility and might fly the family to a resort one week and land on a hunting guide’s strip cut into the Maine wilderness the following week, should take a look at this powerful, no-nonsense T206H, which is available for $430,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the airplane through FLYING Financial Group. For more information, email [email protected].
