Thranda's Cessna U206G Stationair review

The ‘Station Wagon of the Air’

The Stationair was developed during the early 1960s as a fixed gear derivative of the Cessna 210 Centurion and was initially known as the ‘Super Skywagon’. The U206 was introduced in 1964 in response to demand for a more utilitarian aircraft. The ‘U’ stood for ‘Utility’ and following several revisions, it was named the ‘Stationair’, derived from ‘station wagon of the air’. It quickly gained popularity as a bush aircraft due to the combination of a rugged design and spacious cabin. The U206G, modelled here by Thranda, was launched in 1976 and was powered by a 300hp naturally aspirated Continental IO-520-F engine.
