As expected, Maroochydore / Sunshine Coast Airport based Aeromil Pacific visited the Rockhampton Aero Club on Monday, February 08, to demonstrate one of the newer members in the Cessna lineup, a Cessna T240 (TTx).
Originally built by Columbia Aircraft as the Columbia 400, the aircraft evolved as the Cessna T240 (TTx) from 2013 onwards and reportedly powered by a twin turbocharged Continental TSIO-550-C engine producing 310 horsepower (230 kW) at 2600 rpm.
According to the official Aeromil Pacific website, the TTx is capable of achieving a maximum cruise speed of 235 knots, very quick for a fixed gear lightie.
Seating arrangement allows upto 4 people (pilot, 3 passengers).
