CE-207A Stationair 8


On 3 January 1969 Cessna flew the first production example of the lengthened seven-seat Model 207, which reverted to the name Skywagon. This introduced a second access door on the starboard side; a 54kg capacity baggage compartment, forward of the cabin; and the more powerful IO-520-J engine. The 206 and 207 use the same airframe, except that the 207 Skywagon is 3 feet 6.75 inches longer. This extra length is inserted just ahead of the double cargo doors, which adds cubic feet to the cabin, and an extra window on each side, making this a seven-place airplane.


Later the type became known as the Stationair 7 and then the Stationair 8.


Both the Models 206 and 207 can be flown with cargo doors removed for the air-dropping of supplies, parachuting and photography. Both can carry a 136kg glassfibre cargo pack beneath the fuselage, and ambulance kits comprising a stretcher, oxygen supply, and attendant seat are available. The Model 207 also serves with several armed services.


Replaced by the Model 208 Caravan, volume production of the 206 and 207 ended in 1985, although around 100 more airframes were produced and sold. By 31 December 1987, no less than 7,652 Model 206 Skywagon and Stationairs had been delivered, including 643 Super Skylane luxury versions.
