Introducing the Aurora Interior
We are proud to unveil the Aurora interior for the Cessna Caravan series. Fitted with executive appointments and conveniences, the Aurora interior transforms the utilitarian aircraft into a comfortable yet versatile traveler. Wipaire’s engineering and interiors teams coordinated to develop hard goods such as cabinets and divans that are durable yet lighter than competitive products.
“The Cessna Caravan series has been recognized as one of the finest working airplanes in the world over the last 30 years,” commented Chuck Wiplinger, President and COO of Wipaire, Inc. “However, it’s unfair to label the Caravan and Grand Caravan as strictly a workhorse. True to the phrase ‘Swiss army knife of the skies,’ the Caravan series can be transformed into a luxurious retreat with our Aurora interior. While we have converted many Caravans to executive arrangements in the past, we were not able to offer standard floor plans until now.”
Paul Wells, Vice President of Aircraft Services, added, “Our interiors and engineering teams worked together to design this interior cohesively and intelligently. While we have standard layouts and color selections, we are also equipped to customize to meet the desires of our customers. Our interiors department has always specialized in custom requests, and we look forward to making dream interiors a reality for owners of both landplane and floatplane Caravans.”
The Aurora interior is available in two configurations for the Cessna 208 Caravan (a six-passenger forward club and a full-capacity eight-passenger version), as well as four floor plans for the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. The Grand Caravan configurations include an eight-passenger full-capacity version, an eight-passenger forward club, and two eight-passenger aft club arrangements (one with forward cabinets, and one with midship cabinets).
Wipaire, Inc. invested heavily to bring cabinet and hard goods manufacturing in-house. All cabinets and divans are produced by Wipaire’s highly skilled team utilizing lightweight materials. Wipaire’s cabinets and divan offer a significant weight savings over comparable products, maintaining the Caravan’s legendary versatility, even on floats.
