After a production hiatus of twelve years, Cessna started manufacturing a new version of the venerable 206 in 1998, with the introduction of the newly certified 206H. The “H” model is generally similar to the previous U206 configuration, with a pilot entry door and a rear double clamshell door for access to the middle and back seats. The “H” is marketed under the name “Stationair”.
The newest Cessna's, the Skyhawk, Skylane and Stationair all sported: dual vacuum pumps for increased IFR safety; improved panel and cabin lighting including lighted instruments and gauges, more accurate fuel gauges with flow metering and low-fuel warning lights to improve pilot awareness; an annunciator panel to centralize all warnings. The annunciator panel highlights low fuel, low voltace, oil pressure and vacuum-system suction. An alternate static source is also standard.
Other comfort and performance enhancements added are: inertia-reel shoulder harness, energy absorbing seats, padded glareshields, individual intercom jacks, multiple fresh-air vents, stronger door latches, and stronger seat rails.
Earlier models came equipped with Bendix/King avionics and beginning in 2004 the Garmin G1000 avionics package was standard. The new Cessnas came with better insulation for sound and thicker windows coupled with the slower engine speeds of the Lycoming. This assured Cessna of the quietest cabins of any piston plane.
The model 206H is the ultimate utility / bush plane, but the interior is designed to be flexible with cargo and passengers. It features wide utility doors, seats that are easily removed, and a large luggage compartment with easy access. Cessna even offers a baggage pod that adds considerable volume, therefore, providing flexibility for passengers and baggage.
In summary, the model 206H can be configured for carrying large loads of passengers or being outfitted with floats or oversize wheels for remote strips. It is the ultimate machine in comfort and capabilities.
