What's the passenger capacity of a Cessna aircraft?How much distance can it fly without refuelling?

December 1, 2008


You need to be a bit more specific, most people think of Cessnas as small piston single engine prop planes, for those:

CE-182T Skylane 1 pilot + 3 passengers. Tanks full range of 980 nm.
CE-206H Stationair 1 pilot + 5 passengers. Tanks full range of 595 nm.

Cessna also makes a single engine turboprop:

CE-208B Grand Caravan 1 pilot + 9 passengers. Tank full range of 834 nm

Cessna jets range fron the upcoming Mustang (CE-510) for 1 pilot + 5 passengers, max range 1280nm; to the Sovereign (CE-680) for 2 pilots + from 9 to 12 passengers, max range 2798nm and the Citation X (CE-750)(fastest civilian aircraft in service) for 2 pilots + 8 to 12 passengers, max range 3070nm.
