The Caravan has been an incredible success. Rugged and reliable plane, with FedEx as primary customer (tho makes an awesome float plane too).

Anyone know the SkyCourier’s TO and landing distance numbers?

I foresee a lot of these at large dropzones in the future.
As much as I appreciate Cessna's efforts at building a new aircraft in these trying times, the P&W PT-6 powered PZL M.28 Skytruck is certified, proven and ready to go. All it needs is a North American based parts and customer support base. Unit cost is approximately 7-million USD.
