Connu pour être un des avions les plus polyvalents et robustes jamais produits, le Cessna Caravan est devenu la bête de somme aérienne des temps modernes. Comme on l'appelle chez Cessna, "le couteau suisse avec des ailes" fait tout : brousse, exploration et cartographie, patrouilles, EVASAN, missions militaires, vols de loisir, largage parachutistes, etc. La réputation quasi légendaire de sécurité et de fiabilité du Caravan en font une constante de confort pour ceux qui le surnomment affectueusement le "4X4 volant", ou le "cargo aérien".

Known for being one of the most versatile and robust aircraft ever produced, the Cessna Caravan has become the DC3 workhorse of our current times – as Cessna nicknames it, a "Swiss Army Knife with wings"! This pilot favorite does it all, on land or sea: bush flying, geophysical exploration and mapping, patrol, air ambulance, military, sightseeing, corporate, commuter airline, skydiving, cargo, missionary and humanitarian flying, and much more. The Caravan's almost legendary reputation of safety and reliability remains a comforting constant for those whom affectionately refer to the aircraft as a “flying SUV,” “Suburban with a turbine,” and “aerial truck.”

From its coverage of the Caravan's colorful history to its innovative-yet-conventional aircraft systems, to interesting pilot stories, tips, and beautiful photography throughout, Lewis and Cook's book is both entertaining and enlightening—Caravan edutainment at its best! The chapters parallel flight phases on a typical mission, and are chock-full of experience, insights and trivia from preflight to postflight – a truly amazing story for all pilots interested in this legendary powerhouse.

Two sections of color photography are included, and multiple appendices with further information on specifications and industry contacts for Caravan owners, as well as extensive footnotes and bibliography.
