The Cessna C340: the ideal twin-engine aircraft for business travel

PRESENTATION OF THE CESSNA C340

The C340 is a twin-engine pressurised piston aircraft produced by Cessna from 1971 to 1985. Its main asset is its spacious pressurised and air-conditioned cabin, which comfortably seats four passengers in a club seating configuration. 

Thanks to its two 310 hp engines, the C340 reaches a cruising speed of 390 km/h, which it will be able to maintain over long distances.

Despite its short production period of 12 years, the Cessna 340 remains a very popular twin-engine aircraft. Its speed, comfortable cabin, reasonable price and various baggage compartments make it an ideal aircraft for business travellers.

ADVANTAGES OF THE CESSNA C340

- The spacious pressurised cabin.

- Its affordable price (from €690/hour on Openfly)

- Plenty of space for luggage between the nose and wing compartments and the cabin.

- A consequent range of 2400 km.

 

INTERIOR OF THE CESSNA C340

The Cessna C340 cabin is spacious. While some of the aircraft listed on OpenFly are equipped with a 5-seat configuration, most are in a 4-seat square layout so as not to take too much of the aircraft's range away. In all cases, travellers will find leather seats and enough legroom to travel very comfortably. 

There is ample luggage space, allowing you to take several suitcases with you.

For many situations the C340 will be the ideal twin engine aircraft. Then you will have to switch to models like the Beechcraft C90 for more seating.
