HCI owns and operates a late model Cessna T210N One of the BEST!Centurion II airplane, N178RD. The Centurion is Cessna’s “Top of the Line,” reciprocating powered single engine airplane

The Cessna Centurion II These airplanes are well known for their ability to fly high and go fast with a large payload. The 310 horse power engine is turbocharged allowing the Centurion to fly at altitudes above 20,000 feet with at a takeoff gross weight of 4000 pounds. The large, roomy cabin, seats the pilot and five passengers or about 1000 pounds of cargo with the passenger seats removed.

The Centurion will fly 4 – 5 hours on a standard fuel load, about 750 – 950 miles. The Centurion has a high wing, meaning the wing is attached at the top of the cabin. The landing gear, (wheels) retract into the belly after takeoff and the high wing does not have support struts, (like most high wing models). These features provide passengers with a totally clear and unobstructed scenic view during flight and all seats are window seats.

This airplane is equipped with the latest flight, navigation and instrument technology including; a Chelton digital autopilot, Garmin GNS 430 GPS and GTX 330 S Band transponder, Sandel 3500 EHSI, dual generator and vacuum systems and JPI 700 engine monitoring system.

The airplane may fly at a cruise speed up to 180 mph, (3 miles per minute) and takeoff and land on airstrips shorter than 2000 feet.

The FAA has certified this airplane to operate under the FAR Part 135 commercial rules, therefore a strict maintenance and inspection program is required for these operations.
