Cessna Caravan will join Florida's FWC aviation unit
The multi-mission Caravan destined for the FWC will aid in protecting Florida's natural resources and human life through proactive and responsive law enforcement services.
The Cessna Caravan will expand FWC’s conservation law enforcement capabilities.

Textron Aviation has signed a purchase agreement for one Cessna Caravan aircraft destined for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Division of Law Enforcement. The Cessna Caravan will join two Bell 505 helicopters recently placed on order by the FWC.

“The Cessna Caravan is a proven platform for public safety agencies around the world,” says vice president, special mission sales Bob Gibbs. “The multi-mission Caravan destined for the FWC will aid in protecting Florida's natural resources and human life through proactive and responsive law enforcement services.”

Headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida and established in 1999, the FWC manages fish and wildlife resources for their long term well-being and the benefit of people. The FWC Division of Law Enforcement is responsible for patrol and investigative law enforcement services over more than 8,400 miles of coastline, 13,200 sqm of offshore waters and more than 34 million acres of land.

With its powerful turboprop engine, the Cessna Caravan delivers the rare combination of high performance, low operating costs and ability to adapt to a wide variety of missions. The powerful, efficient, dependable 675-horsepower PT6A-114A turbine engine gives the Caravan turboprop its exceptional payload capabilities. Operators in the world's most demanding environments immediately adopted the rugged, dependable turboprop and have been rewarded with unparalleled dispatch reliability. On top of more than 30 years of proven capability comes even greater value with the Caravan turboprop's lower direct operating costs and factory support.
