The Cessna 206 family was, for a time, one of the most impressive aircraft on the market thanks to their rather robust size and their commanding nature compared to many other light aircraft. They were very popular bush planes for a while, too, as many people decided to turn to them for their rather utility style an also for the fact they can handle so much flight in a short space of time.
The perennial workhorse, this made it incredibly easy for pilots to put in the hours when flying something like this - and the 206H was something that really popped up and shook the world.
The H brand was released far after the original 206 brand, which came around in the mid-1960s. The H brand, though, never arrived until the late 1990s as a new replacement for the aging yet still well-loved Cessna P206 and U206. This new change to the market signaled a big change for Cessna, though, as they eventually deviated away from the 206 range despite the massive success of the Stationair 206H.
The aircraft was designed with the idea of providing easier access to and from the plane for its passengers as well as picking up some engineering faults and quirks that existed from long before the original had been created, ensuring that the Cessna 206H would quickly establish itself as a solid option in the skies.
As of 2015, the 206H remains in construction on a regular basis and is - arguably - still potentially the most well-received of the entire family.

Available now as an immediate download, the Cessna Turbo 206H is another fantastic add-on for both Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D, developed by the remarkable team at Carenado. Constantly pushing what is possible within our favorite simulators, Carenado continue to deliver quality aircraft models, boasting impeccable visuals and solid functionality. The Turbo 206H is a variant of the default Cessna 206, originally developed from the Cessna 210 general aviation aircraft. With a single engine putting out 310 horsepower and easier access to the middle and back seats, it is both a more practical and more powerful aircraft than its predecessor.
The impeccable 3D model of the 206H is painted with high resolution (2048 x 2048) textures that brim with detail and hold up very well when being scrutinized under full zoom. A total of five gorgeous liveries are included in this package, alongside an equally high resolution blank texture for you to use as a guide when designing your own personalized repaints. Between the various liveries and the option to have either one or two 3D modeled pilots on board, plus a customizable panel that allows you to control things like transparency, reflections and static elements, Carenado certainly provide a lot of choice when it comes to your visual experience.
Certain special features add a great deal of depth to the overall experience and make this aircraft all the more enjoyable to fly. From faint scratches on the windows that appear under certain lighting, to the new lighting rendering system that causes aircraft lights to illuminate the ground and other objects, these special effects make the outside environment feel more alive and palpable. The same can be said of the virtual cockpit, where everything is finely crafted and and true-to-life; an air of authenticity fills the space, and creates a satisfying platform for you to assume your role as pilot.
A digital stereo sound set recorded live from the real aircraft, paired with flight dynamics that accurately portray both the behavior and performance of the 206H, adhere together to round out the experience as a whole. The numerous PDF documents detailing checklists and procedures, provide pilots with all the information required for swift mastery of this fine aircraft.
