New Cessna Denali mockup on display

Textron Aviation is displaying a new full-scale mockup of the Cessna Denali turboprop at EAA AirVenture 2018, held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on July 23-29. The mockup features a complete cockpit and interior.

“We have made great strides in the design and development of the Denali,” said Rob Scholl, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Textron Aviation. “Since first introducing the aircraft at EAA AirVenture in 2015 – and unveiling the initial cabin concept in 2016 – we have fine-tuned the Denali’s characteristics based upon feedback gathered from our customer base and look forward to delivering a best-in-class experience for pilots and passengers alike.”

According to Textron Aviation, the Cessna Denali’s cabin cross-section is the widest in its segment (single-engine turboprop), providing passengers with additional head and shoulder room — and more room for cargo and baggage. The design takes cues from elements found in Textron Aviation’s large-cabin business jets, with features including larger seats and windows, a modular refreshment center and an aft lavatory.

During the show, the company will demonstrate the adaptability of the cabin, which can be transformed from an executive configuration to a combi layout for passengers and cargo.

The executive seating configuration accommodates six individual reclining seats, club-configuration tables and a refreshment unit while the commuter seating layout has nine individual forward-facing seats. The aircraft’s digital pressurization system maintains a 6,130ft cabin altitude at a service ceiling of 31,000ft.

An optional, externally serviceable belted lavatory with pocket door enclosure can be located in the back of the cabin. Other highlights include interior LED lighting, a forward refreshment cabinet and an inflight-accessible baggage compartment.

The Cessna Denali program continues to progress on schedule. The company anticipates achieving the first wing mate and completion of the prototype airframes as the program nears first flight in early 2019.
