History

 

There was a TU206 turbocharged version powered by the Continental TSIO-520-C engine producing 285 hp. From 1977-1986 the turbo TU206 was powered by a TSIO-520-F with 300 hp. The extra 15 hp was obtained by turning the engine at a higher rpm, and was allowed for only five minutes. Due to the large propeller diameter, the additional engine speed meant that the propeller tips were pushed to transonic speeds, which required much more power.

In 1977 the TU206 powerplant was changed to the TSIO-520-M producing 310 hp.

Production of all versions of the U206 was halted in 1986 when Cessna stopped manufacturing all piston-engined aircraft. A total of 5,208 U206s had been produced.

 

Further development

 

At the beginning of production the model was called a Cessna 207 “Skywagon”, but in 1977 the name was changed to “Stationair 7”. 1977 also saw a change of engine on the turbocharged version to a Continental TSIO-520-M producing 310 hp – the same engine used in the TU206 of the same vintage.
