Back in 1987, Shoreline Aviation operated the first Cessna Caravan Amphibian to be placed in commercial service. Since then we have had several of these great airplanes and continuously upgrade our fleet to ensure that we offer the best equipment possible for our clients.
We now operate ten amphibious Cessna Caravans. The Cessna Caravans are the largest new amphibious aircraft in production today. In the United States, we are limited by regulation to nine passenger seats, but in other parts of the world they seat up to fourteen people.
This year we are excited to feature 3 brand new Cessna Caravan EX aircraft. These airplanes offer larger cabins with new interiors so that everyone has a window seat with more legroom. They feature an 867 horsepower Pratt & Whitney Turbine Engine and larger Wipline 8750 floats for better handling in rough water. They are equipped with state-of-the-art Avionics for navigation and communication, with XM Weather capability and Synthetic Vision Technology.
We operate 5 Cessna Caravan 208 commuter aircraft. These are the workhorses of our fleet. These aircraft have been upgraded with the more powerful P&W 867 horsepower engine for better takeoff performance on the East River and a faster climb and cruise to get you to your destination a bit quicker.
Our 2 Executive Class aircraft offer seating for 4 to 6 passengers in Corporate Jet style interiors. They are equipped with modern Garmin Avionics and offer the most comfortable ride available for small groups.
Every Shoreline aircraft is equipped with on-board weather, traffic avoidance systems, terrain awareness systems, and the latest in communication and navigation equipment. Of course, all aircraft are air-conditioned. We operate all aircraft with two-pilot crews.
