History

 

The P206 was added to the line in 1965. In this case the “P” stood for “passenger”, as the P206 had passenger doors similar to the Cessna 210 from which it was derived, on both sides. The P206 had the same door arrangement as the 205, but with the bigger engine from the 206.

The P206 was produced from 1965 to 1970 and was powered by a Continental IO-520-A of 285 hp (213 kW). There was a turbocharged model designated TP206 which was powered by a Continental TSIO-520-A also of 285 hp (213 kW).

647 P206s were produced under the name “Super Skylane” which made it sound like a version of the Cessna 182, which it was not. Sub-variants were designated P206 to P206E.

 

Design and development

 

Turbocharging became available on both variants in 1966, with a 285-HP Continental TSIO- 520C. The P206 was discontinued in 1970, with a total production run of 647.
