The 7-8 seat light utility aircraft Cessna 207 was built in the period 1969-1984 by the Cessna
Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas, USA. Model 207 appeared in 1968 as an elongated 7 seats
version of the Cessna 206D. The protoype Cessna Skywagon 207 was flown first on 11 May 1968. Over
the years the Model 207 was developed and next to the Cessna 207A Super Skywagon with larger diameter
propellor, the turbocharged Cessna T207 Turbo Skywagon appeared. In 1978, the design was revised to
produce the Stationair 7 and Turbo Stationair 7, which with the introduction of an eighth seat in 1980,
became the Stationair 8 and Turbo Stationair 8. When production ended in 1984: 790 207s were built.
Over the years various subsequent third-party developments of the 207 were introduced, like the
Soloy Turbine Pac conversion. This Soloy Turbine Pac STC (#SE2352NM) converts the Allison 250-C20S
turboshaft engine into a FOD resistant, highly reliable, 420 hp turboprop package. The turbine engine
is inherently quiet, producing very little exhaust noise. In the Soloy system, the propeller turns very
slowly, i.e., approximately 1200 RPM for taxi, 1810 RPM for takeoff and cruise. Consequently, the Soloy
Turbine Cessna is very quiet in all areas of operation.
The 1978-built Cessna 207 Super Skywagon s/n 20700088 was registered OE-DEV in Austria. In May 1991,
registration OE-DEV was cancelled as exported to Germany and the airplane was re-registered D-EBMW.
Today, Cessna 207 D-EBMW is operated by Flug Center Milan for Milan Geoservice GmbH, Kamenz (EDCM).
On 8 November 2019, Cessna 207 Super Skywagon D-EBMW was seen at Flugplatz Emden in service Milan Geoservice.
