Crownair Companies, a San Diego-based aviation maintenance and avionics company, will display its first Crownair “Centurion Edition” T210 at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association show in San Jose, Calif., Nov. 6-8.
From spinner to tail cone, the upgraded 1977 planes features all new and state-of-the-art amenities, including a glass cockpit with Electronic Flight Instrument System, new classic blue paint scheme, RAM engine, tinted glass, wingtips with recognition lights, Super Quiet cabin soundproofing and gray leather seats with sheepskin inserts. The Crownair Centurion Edition T210 will compete with new manufactured aircraft by offering more payload, faster speeds and more range, according to company officials.
The Centurion was in production from 1957 to 1985 and approximately 9,240 were manufactured.
“Centurion owners and pilots own a piece of history, but that doesn’t mean the plane shouldn’t have modern technology and comforts,” said Grant Murray, Crownair owner.
Production on the Centurion Edition T210 will be done on an as-ordered basis and takes approximately two to three months.
