1965 U206 #380 MTOW increase

Hi everybody,

I introduce myself : I'm working as Technical Manager in a French FBO, leader in maintaining skydiving airplanes as PILATUS PC6, CESSNA Caravan and, since a couple of years, some C206 fitted with PT6A engine.

Recently, we have retrofited this old U206 with turbine and we would like to find a solution to increase MTOW from 3300 lb to 3600 lb, does anyone has any idea to get this result?

Thank you for your help on this matter,
Take care
Laurent

    Hello Laurent,
    Have you checked with your French Aviation Authority on this? Here in the US you would go to an FAA FSDO office.

  • Dear Scott,
    Thank you for your proposal but french Authority only recognize Approved data (TCDS, STC,...) no way to get authorisation to operate this aircraft at 3800lb if the TCDS shows 3600lb.

    Please could you explain me how you would proceed with the FAA to get this approval?
    Thank you very much
    Laurent
