Cessna 206/210 Info

Gents does anyone have any basic info for the 206/210?

Stuff like:
MTOW
BEW
Fuel Capacity
Fuel Burn
TAS
Etc etc

And before everyone jumps on me, yes i realise every aircraft is different and there are many variables

I am looking for just a basic guide please.

Thanks to all who answer and PM if you would prefer.

Cheers

Hey mate,

Check this out for very generic data.

http://www.risingup.com/planespecs/info/

Of course if the good Dr. was around I am sure he could quote you all this stuff off the top of his head!

In his absence, there is a new dude on here I have notcied of late, Gods Gift to Aviating or something like that....I'll bet he is sure to give you an earfull too.

In fact I would love to see those two start a debate up on this stuff! Talk about a battle of wits!

I think we could safely sya that you are talking about C210 and Dave is talking about the C206

Our 1983 U206G lists MTOW of 1633kg and fuel capacity (useable) of 335.

Block fuel 60/hour

Block speed 125

You would be unlucky to find an old Cessna in Australia with standard tanks.

I have flown the slowest C210 in Oz, ie 150 kts TAS at 75% power (won't mention the call sign) and today I may well have flown the fastest C210 in Oz (IO550 powered). Only did one BIG circuit in it for a test flight - but it was indicating 160 kts at 1000' on 2600/22". Tomorrow I am taking it for a serious running in flight - will be interesting to see just how quick it really is. It certainly takes some slowing down. I thought the V-tail was quick - but this thing is seriously fast!

I will pull the book and post the real figures in here tomorrow night, but as a rough guide I have generally flightplanned as follows:

MTOW - TBA
BEW - TBA
Fuel Capacity - 5+ hrs
Fuel Burn - 60 L/hr
TAS - 160 to 165 kts depending on the age etc of the aeroplane

As I recall:

I think i flew the slowest C206 in the country TAS = 110 kts

Most of the C210's i have flown TAS = 140 - 150 kts (have not flown in cold conditions)

Fuel Burn = 55 - 65 L/hr

Fuel Tanks = See flight manual (Around 336L)

BEW = 950kg?? C206, 1050 - 1150kg?? C210 (from memory - some had been slightly bent)

MTOW = 1636kg C206, 1724kg C210

Forkie, nice looking 210 on page 2 of the latest Aviation Trader. Time to hang up the FTDK and step up into the world of a serious cross country machine?

Chuck some GAMI's on that baby and you can tas 150kts on 48l/hr, or at least a friend who owns one can and that is only with an IO520!


Cheers

Different ones

There are many different C210 models. Ours used to cruise at 165 knots.

Slowest 210

FTDK, if my 210 did 150 knots I would be abolutely stoked!!! The old bitch ive got is lucky to get over 135-140 knots on a good day!! I think it basically just turns petrol into noise

Just out of curiousity, anyone flown a 210 with the TSIO550 up front?

Ahhhhh, not TSIO550 but IO550!

0.4 hrs yesterday and 2.3 hrs today

1980 C210N with zero time IO-550-L and Hartzell 82" scimitar prop

Trying to run this thing in at 70-75% power is a challenge. It is seriously quick. Makes me kinda nervous cruising 165 IAS - 5 kts into the yellow arc.

4500', 18oC, 1013, IAS 165 kts, TAS 177 kts, 68 L/hr (but that is 100oC rich of peak EGT - which is what the run-in procedure calls for). That's 67% max HP.

Climbs like the Space Shuttle - 120 kts, 1500'/min at sea level, down to 1000'/min at 6000'.

The new "office"!

Yeah 165kts is fair hiking. I imagine with the TSIO-550 a 210 would be seriously quick up at 12000 feet or so then.

Used to fly an '82 n/a 210N a number of years ago and with a light load it would tas at 171kts. The IO-550 powered 210 (also an '82 model) I've flown more recently would wind out to 178kts with an average load. With just the pilot and a bit of fuel sloshing around in the bottom of the tanks, 181ktas was the number. Who needs a Cirrus?

WTF I don't get it. You mean slow and winding like a train?

How about "a fart in the bath" or "a homesick angel"

Strutless Dr. Killer (AKA FTDK) that can't be you flying I onle see two GPS's. How the heck would you know where you were with only two

Cheers
Mr B

Edited to add: My bad I think the one in the bottom of the stack is indeed a GPS (KLN90b?), so that would make three. I feel much better knowing you have at least three again...
