Following certification, Cessna is now offering hard point provisions for the Cessna Grand Caravan EX. These enable extended range with additional fuel tanks, increased cargo space, agricultural operations and the ability to configure the aircraft for missions that require armament.
“It’s essential that we continue to tailor solutions for our special-mission operators’ needs,” said Tom Hammoor, president of Textron Aviation’s defense company. “The hard point wing structure furthers the Grand Caravan EX’s already legendary versatility by adding more mission flexibility to the platform. The Caravan platform is operating in many special-mission roles around the world and accounts for a large percentage of our worldwide Caravan fleet.”
