  1986 Cessna P210R
Pressurized Centurion

(Click picture above for full resolution image)

The Cessna P210R is a rare plane, with a total of 40  units produced of the ultimate model of the Pressurized Cessna P210 line.  Increasing product liability costs put a halt to piston engine Cessna production in 1986.

There were quite a few significant improvements in the P210R.  The 325 hp Continental TSIO-520CE was introduced with a more efficient two-stage intercooler, and a redesigned  cowling with larger cowl flaps and other modifications to improve cooling on the R model P210.  Gross weight was increased to 4100 lbs.  Wingtips were redesigned to comply with FAR part 23 lightning requirement, improve aerodynamics, and  improve stall behavior at the break.  Most notable in the P210R was a completely redesigned tail with 3 feet more span,  completely eliminating the aileron-rudder interconnect as well as the bobweight and downsprings which make the elevator so heavy on the previous N model P210's.  Fuel management was simplified further by incorporation of a "BOTH" setting on the fuel selector for access to the massive 120 gal optional fuel tanks.  Optimum cruise speed at FL200 increased by 20 knots on the P210R model.

This plane spent its early life with a Cessna dealer in Florida, proceeded on paper through a few aircraft dealers on its way to its first private owner in  Klamath Falls Oregon. After 6 years in Klamath Falls, the second private owner was Baker Car and Truck Rental in Arkansas. Van Bortel Aircraft in Arlington Texas sold the plane to the third owner in 1998.  This aircraft had a Denver area owner from 2005 to 2012, and then was exported to Australia.

VH-ZOP received a fresh Continental factory remanufactured engine in 2012, which now has approximately 150 hours accumulated since.  Paint was done in a modern Cessna scheme, with a complementary new leather interior in 2012 as well.  Aircraft has been hangared since paint and interior.

VH-ZOP is loaded with modern avionics, leaving little to be desired for the pickiest of pilots. For those who would prefer touch-screen Garmin, the upgrade can easily be done and included in financing The O&N aux fuel tank brings the total fuel capacity to 149 gallons, giving a max endurance profile along the lines of 10 hours.  Radar, uplink, WAAS GPS, altitude preselect, active traffic avoidance, known-ice and air conditioning make this the ultimate piston single engine cross-coutry machine.
