The Cessna Grand Caravan EX is perfect for bush airstrips due to its large wheels, very efficient high wing, and powerful engine. Its wide, spacious, air-conditioned cabin and large windows with unrestricted views make the Caravan extremely popular with our guests. The four-door cargo pod located under the fuselage means a very generous luggage-carrying capacity. The Caravan is known for its safety and reliability.
