I think they’re the best in the business. The engine seems very smooth and quiet, but maybe that’s because I’ve spent so much time in older Skylanes, where the soundproofing was very minimal. Cessna is unlikely to pursue that design until the market turns around, however.

SVT should be ready to go and in new airplanes by the time you read this. In Western skies where runways often perch cessna mile or more above the sea, the trend is definitely toward turbos. So, to get back to the question, what is there left to say about the Skylane? That contributes to excellent manners in the pattern.

It has the option of adding two child seats, installed in the baggage area.

The airplane I flew for this report is the TT, with the latter T being its model designation and the former T standing for its turbocharging. Flying High After we got back from lunch and an impromptu self-guided tour of downtown Marfa in our ’80s-vintage Pontiac, we had the Skylane topped off, though we didn’t actually need to. A current and valid Pilot Operating Handbook issued to your aircraft and approved by the relevant Civil Aviation Authority must be on board your aircraft.


Some of these files are produced by Red Sky Ventures, others are a collection of resources found at various places on the web, often without links to the author or creator, which have simply been collated and indexed by us. Stay tuned for the next chapter of the Skylane saga. Still, position an old and a new Skylane side-by-side in bare aluminum trim, and you might be hard-pressed to tell the difference.

As with most, current-generation Cessnas, adverse yaw is virtually non-existent, making rudder coordination unnecessary in banks shallower than 35 degrees. The latest additions to the airplane are few but impressive, and the list of features added when the T model was launched a few years back are numerous.

With 87 gallons in the tanks and a typical burn of 17 gph at high cruise, plan on nm plus reserve between fuel stops. There’s cfssna no ambiguity. A built-in, four-position oxygen system is standard on the T-Skylane, and the new generation of cannulas makes oxygen use more tolerable than the old, full facemasks. The Lycoming is so severely de-rated, that max cruise power is listed as 88 percent.

I really like the sound of the turbocharged Lyc in the The model designation nomenclature differs from some other Cessna cessn with optional retractable gear. The online aircraft value reference, Vref Online, shows that decline graphically. Combine excellent reliability, plentiful performance, and reasonable comfort, and you have the formula that has made the a winner for nearly a half-century.

We decided to go back VFR, so we picked 11, feet, hoping that would put us on top. We’d filed to Marfa direct at 8, an altitude that would keep us well out of any ice and hopefully above any turbulence. It’s easy to see why.

Retrieved 23 March This document has been designed to assist with study for Namibian PPL validation, to provide practical information for safe flying within Namibian airspace. We were looking at right around It does not indicate whether these numbers include the retractable-gear s, which are no longer in production and therefore are not discussed on their webpage.


The system does not, however, allow the landing gear to be manually retracted. The system includes a gear position warning that emits an intermittent tone through the cabin speaker when the gear is in the retracted position and either the throttle is reduced below approximately 12″ MAP manifold pressure or the flaps are extended beyond 20 degrees.

With the gusty conditions and a good deal of wind shear on final, I kept a few extra knots in on final, a sentiment that Chris seconded, and we touched down well past the numbers but still using up relatively little runway in the process, even with the faster-than-standard approach speed and the use of just one notch of flaps.

For those pilots with long-range bladders who can endure eight-hour legs, dramatically reduced power settings can extend range to nearly nm.

Overall, SVT is very nicely implemented, the symbology is big and easy to interpret, and the colors are bright and vibrant. Like the DC-3 and Boeing Stearman in other general aviation markets, pih venerable Skylane is far from perfect, but almost a half poj after its introduction, it continues to offer perhaps the best combination of simplicity, performance, comfort, economy, and payload in the industry.
