Land, water, or air, the Caravan Amphibian is your durable all-purpose aircraft for both work and play.

Adaptability is an understatement

Whatever your mission, the Caravan Amphibian will get the job done. For years, the Amphibian has been accomplishing life-saving missions, charter missions, hauling missions, and more in all corners of the world. Whether you’re an outdoorsman, a charter pilot, a cargo hauler, a medic, a flight enthusiast, or something else entirely, the Caravan Amphibian is ready to load up and take off to wherever you need to go.

  • Caravan for Business Aviation

    Hear business owners discuss the efficiencies and expansions they’ve realized from investing in a Caravan.


    Fail-safe structural design, brilliant engineering

    Your Future Floats on Water


    The Caravan’s airframe is durable aluminum construction with multiple load redundancies and reliable remote operations.


    The Caravan’s exhaust was designed to prevent odors in the cabin without the use of door seals.

    Amphibious floats

    Whether you’re touching down on water or land, durable amphibious floats make your landing as smooth as the flight itself. They also offer more storage space, so pack them full and take off.


    The Caravan Amphibian’s Pratt & Whitney PT6 engine is ultraefficient with a scheduled overhaul interval of 3,600 hours and a hot section inspection at 1,800 hours. The cowling comes free easily in less than 15 minutes, uncovering the engine and accessories for exceptional ease of maintenance.


    Deceptively refined interiors

    The Caravan Amphibian’s characteristic workhorse exterior doesn’t hint at its high-end, refined, and comfortable interior. Passengers will enjoy luxurious leather seating with adjustable backrests, folding armrests, and a number of available interior options. It offers cabin space for as many as two crewmembers and twelve passengers. Cargo doors open to 49 inches by 49 inches for loading large items.The Caravan comes in multiple seating arrangements with a wide center of gravity for safer operation.

    Select Your Personal Touches

    The Cessna Caravan’s interior collections were designed to accommodate a wide range of first-class requirements, from executive travel to charter services to personal use — all in immaculate style and comfort.

    Executive interior options

    The Oasis upgrade is an executive, first-class interior with many tailored options.


    Technology to minimize workload

    Intelligence to maximize safety

    The updated all-glass cockpit features state-of-the-art Garmin G1000 avionics. This flight deck sets a new standard in simple, reliable, intelligent controls for pilots in all phases of the flight. Your Amphibian’s famed dispatch reliability is due in large part to this advanced ready-to-fly control center. All controls and switches are positioned within easy reach, designed with extensive research in human factors engineering. The range of standard and optional equipment, combined with the ergonomically designed cockpit, create the optimal flight control environment for every pilot.

    Weather news and entertainment

    The optional XM Satellite Weather and Entertainment package gives reliable weather data as well as tips for avoiding hazardous weather. Graphical weather data and text is displayed on the MFD and the PFD Inset map. The GDL 69A can also receive XM Satellite Radio entertainment services. Includes FK 675W, 4-place intercom in cabin. This option is available for U.S. customers only and requires a subscription service.

    Terrain awareness

    The Garmin TAWS (Terrain Awareness and Warning System) is an optional feature to increase situational awareness and enhance safety by helping reduce the risk of controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). With this option, you will both see and hear alerts from the system when your aircraft comes within a certain altitude threshold from any terrain or obstacles. This Class B–certified awareness system will give you a valuable extra margin of safety when you’re in the air.
