FlightGlobal reports that FedEx received “the first Cessna SkyCourier turboprop” from Textron Aviation. This makes FedEx the “launch customer of the clean-sheet SkyCourier, which Textron Aviation markets as a cargo and special-mission aircraft, and as a 19-passenger airliner.” FedEx placed an order for “50 of the aircraft, which are powered by twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-65SC turboprops.” Textron Aviation President Ron Draper said, “We believe many other air freight, passenger and special mission operators also will benefit from the winning combination of low operating costs and unparalleled lift capacity that the new Cessna SkyCourier brings to the market.”
