Air Charter – Cessna 402C

Cessna-402C
Charter Aircraft

The Cessna 402 is a 8 to 10 seat, light twin, piston engine charter aircraft. This line was manufactured by Cessna from 1966 to 1985 under the name Utiliner and Businessliner. All seats are easily removable so that the aircraft can be used in an all-cargo configuration. Neither the Cessna 401 nor the 402 were pressurized, nor were they particularly fast for the installed horsepower. Instead, Cessna intended them to be inexpensive to purchase and operate.
