Orion Aviation Cessna Skymaster Makes Stop at Farmington Regional Airport
By Fred Harl
An Orion Aviation Cessna T337H Turbo Skymaster made a stop at Farmington, MO Regional Airport last week. Siler City, NC-based Orion Aviation provides aircraft and crews for missions in support of civil and government contracted air services. The Cessna 337 Skymaster series offers high twin piston-engine performance and safety without the asymmetric thrust challenges presented by wing-mounted twin engines in the event of an engine failure. Orion Aviation has five Skymasters, one Cessna 210 and a Quest Kodiac in its fleet.
Here are some views of the aircraft walk-around on the apron and the take off:
