There is a moment when you go from simply having your pilot’s certificate to being a pilot. It’s a transition you feel in your gut, and once you’ve made a 230-horsepower climb in a Cessna® Skylane® there’s no going back.


The Cessna Skylane matches powerful capability with a proven airframe that is easy to fly.

The sophisticated Garmin G1000 integrated flight deck combined with a 230 HP high-performance engine gives you performance you can count on. Enjoy room for four with the ergonomically designed two-tone seating and travel over 900 nautical miles nonstop. With the ability to take off and land on short runways, and an impressive payload capability, the Skylane is a true high-performance workhorse.



Classic design and comfort

The leather-appointed seating featuring the sport, two-tone Interior is perfect for both pilots and passengers. Enjoy room for four and cabin accessories including a 12-volt power outlet for your portable electronic devices and advanced cabin air controls.


Deep-contoured leather seats, featuring two-tone interior. With ergonomically designed seats wrapped in durable Luxor or optional leather, the Skylane offers a four-seat configuration, providing room to expand your aviation influence to your friends and colleagues.

The Cessna Skylane is powered by the latest technology in integrated cockpit avionics, the Garmin G1000 NXi.

With an improved graphical interface, more powerful hardware, higher resolution displays, added functionality to improve situational awareness, and optional wireless technology, managing the flight deck has never been easier.

the most advanced flight deck in the category

The Skylane cockpit features the all-glass Garmin G1000 flight deck customized for Cessna, reducing pilot workload and boosting ease of operation. Two large-format, high-resolution, color liquid crystal displays make fast assimilation of critical flight data effortless. The jet-level GFC 700 autopilot significantly reduces pilot workload and enhances the safety of every flight. Additional features include a go-around button, flight-level change, and precise guidance with optional satellite-driven graphical weather radar.

virtual vision

Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) enhances visual orientation with three-dimensional renderings of terrain on both flight displays. You’ll feel confident in darkness, haze, rain, fog, or any other IFR conditions that might obstruct a clear view through the windshield. This advanced graphics modeling technology recreates the surrounding landscape accurately in dimensional, graphical renderings on your primary flight display. You’ll get a clear picture of ground and water, airports, obstacles, and air traffic — all shown relative to the aircraft. Never before has risk avoidance been so simple and intuitive. Rising terrain areas or low-altitude flying can sometimes present obstacles that present real danger when unexpected. With SVT, such potential obstacles are rendered and color-coded for alerting when there may be a potential conflict approaching. Towers and other obstacles that may interfere with the flight path are also highlighted and clearly displayed with height-appropriate symbology.

pin-like precision

The Skylane includes a robust flight management system (FMS) with autopilot controls and additional override features to give you the kind of approach precision you would expect in a jet. The CWS button or control-wheel steering momentarily disengages the autopilot and synchronizes the flight director’s command bars with pitch and roll modes. The CWS button is positioned on the top left grip of the pilot’s control wheel. When released, the flight director will recalibrate, establishing new reference points, depending on the current pitch and roll modes. GA switch or go-around button disengages the autopilot, selects flight director go-around mode, and activates a missed approach. It’s conveniently positioned above the throttle on the instrument panel. Additional features are included in this robust system and together they offer Skylane pilots more precision than any other aircraft in the category.
