The Cessna 208 Caravan model aircraft is a scale replica of the original plane manufactured by Cessna Aircraft. The Caravan is a single engine turbo-prop aircraft designed to be either a cargo feeder or short-route commercial aircraft. FAA certified in 1984, it can typically seat up to 9 passengers with one pilot but it main use has been by Federal Express as a cargo carrier. Providing landing flexibility, the Cessna Caravan can be fitted with skis, floats or enlarged tires for unprepared runways. Over two thousand aircraft have been manufactured to date.
The Cessna Caravan model arrives completely assembled and has a base for aircraft display. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The end result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
